Hi,

Thanks for your service menu. It's great. Do you know how we could have the same for remote host ? Let's say, I'm browsing a directory /my/dir on remote (with Konqueror and fish) and I would like to open a terminal window (ssh) on that host in /my/dir. I looked at your menu, konsole options, and ssh option but I cannot find an answer. Thanks.

This is what I wanted a number of times.

Great work!

Now if someone would only give me the functionality to do a sudo or su from the kicker or Konquerer, I'd have everything :)

When you mean that you click to an Icon in your kicker an an konsole-windows open and ask you about the root-password to login?
Then you copy an normal konsole-icon, click with the right mouse-button on it, click on properties, go in the opening windows to programs (the third tab) and change in field command the entry from "konsole" to "konsole -e su". I hope it is what you looking for.

Thanks, but that is not quite what I wanted. I want to be able to do it directly from the kicker panel too.

Sort of like Microsoft's "run as" command. You can do it from their Start Menu. At least for the applications that need the functionality to run as Administrator when you're logged in with you're non-priveledged user account.

I'd like to be able to open the kicker, select an application with a right or middle click, and have a menu that pops up and says "Launch as..." and it would bring up a sudo dialog, and then launch the applicaiton.

Thank you, I've always missed that but didn't know how to do it myself.
