There is now also a git package managed by adekmaulana

This project is no longer being maintained, you should use codesardine's fork, which is actively being maintained. With the new python update, this extension no longer works, as the "locale" module is no longer a part of gettext. If you want to fix this manually, you can go to /usr/share/nautilus-python/extensions/, comment out from gettext import gettext, locale, bindtextdomain, textdomain and add from gettext import gettext, bindtextdomain, textdomain and import locale on the next line.

'Open as administrator' a folder doesn't work in nautilus I guess the problem is related with the unknown option --no-desktop

Edit: sorry, I haven't checked . The problem seems to be solved in nautilus-admin 1.1.5

Working on ArchMergeD Gnome I wanted open as root in.

I changed this line depends=('nautilus' 'python-nautilus' 'polkit') to depends=('nautilus' 'python2-nautilus' 'polkit') because of conflict and it seems to work here

Hope it helps someone

The PKGBUILD specifies 'python-nautilus' already. I'm honestly not sure why it was trying to call in 'python2-nautilus'. It seemed though that manually specifying removal of 'python2-nautilus' (and this package along with it) and then doing a fresh install does call in the correct dependency and fix the issue. At any rate, the package is updated as well.

$ sudo pacman -Rnsc python2-nautilus $ sudo pacman -U 'nautilus-admin-1.1.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz'

Yes, I think a revision or (or something) will be necessary. I'm finishing up a business trip at the moment so might be a couple days.

@electricprism: Removing and reinstalling nautilus-admin (and nautilus-typeahead, which was also installed on my system) solves the problem.

Edit:looked forward too early, the entries don't appear atm.

On update I get this message :: nautilus-admin: installing python2-nautilus (1.2.1-2) breaks dependency 'python-nautilus'

Does the package need to be revised?

I have little free time now.
I have disown the package and am looking for a new maintainer.

That's strange.

The extension uses the "pkexec" command from polkit to start nautilus/gedit/gnome-terminal as root.
By default, pkexec and polkit don't allow GUI applications to run. But this can be overridden per application with a correct ".policy" file, which is installed by this package.
Something else must be wrong.

I'm not an Arch Linux user, and I don't know a lot about polkit, so I can't be of much help.

Is polkit only failing in this extension, or is it also failing in other GUI applications?
Run this in a terminal to have an idea which other applications run pkexec with GUI: "grep org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.allow_gui /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/*"
Search the Internet to see if you can find anything about this error in pkexec.

Good luck!
