By the way, in the readme, you say that "org.freedesktop.policykit.pkexec.policy" might exist already on the system. In that case, I can't merge your file with the original file through the .deb. So can I rename this file (does renaming it affects running Nautilus as root)?

You need use the exact name for policy file, if you will create deb, you need check if the file exist and if yes, using sed or awk copy the action part from file in archive and merge it. Maybe for now leave it as archive only, because some people can use the pkexec for e.g. gparted and with copying the file only, the current action will be removed. See more here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=999328#p999328

Good, this is an way. If is tested make the package with this style. Try to test it on other distro and if is working, I will update the archive also

Without this file, Nautilus doesn't open from the Extended Places Menu. But I've tried renaming it to org.freedesktop.policykit.pkexec.nautilus-run.policy and it works just fine, at least in Ubuntu.

Just packaged it for Arch/AUR. Keep up the good work and keep us posted at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=53443 (on new updates and major changes). Also, don't hesitate to ask if you like to maintain the AUR package yourself.

By the way, do you think it's possible to launch naitulus (as root) without that extra one-liner bash binary? I agree, it is good enough for personal use. But, as soon as you start packaging it, questions like this can arise.

Thanks! That was so quick. I also see other suggestions below and your responses/updates in no time.

Just updated the AUR package to 1.5.1.

Thanks for packaging. About the root mode. I have tested to do it with simple gksudo, but for the gksudo, there is no support for gnome3 modal dialog (the black modal). For this reason I have used the pkexec. By the way, I will try to implement the direct way for invoking the nautilus (not via the bash script). I will try with next release to fix it.

yes, the string array can be an array created from your ftp bookmarks or VBox machines, so check how are named your bookmarks, and tell me which distro you are using

try to check how are named your VM's or Ftp sites, maybe you have there some non standard characters (in names).

Can you open the extension? If yes, play with open/close VBox, Ftp etc.

At least, which distro you are using ?
