Name: Simple Root Actions Menu
Version: 2.1.0
Type: KDE Service Menu
License: GPL
More Info:

 This is menu that I use, I thought it would be
usefull for some people so I decided to share it.

It is very simple, it contains 4 menu entries:
-delete as root ("sram_d.desktop", for all files
and folders)
-edit as root ("sram_e.desktop", for all text
-open as root ("sram_o.desktop", for all folders)
-run as root ("sram_r.desktop", for all executable

Since the menu become popular I decided to make an
installation script. So, from version 1.3 "Simpe
Root Actions Menu" comes packed within shell
script file - Installer script. The installer
gives you ability to define various parameters of
the installation, like whether you want to install
the menu for konqueror or dolphin, what text
editor to use, whether to use kdesu or gksu, etc.
Version 2 (and greater) supports KDE 4.


Download and unpack the content and run
"sram_install" in your shell ("./sram_install")
Follow menu instructions.

Be sure to read [b]README[/b] file first!!!


You can send me [b]translations[/b] to your
language if you want, so I can update the menus.
Also comments or suggestions are welcome.
