Thunar custom actions including "root terminal here" without gksudo

Updated 11-20-2010 at 02:36 AM by catkin (Changed title to mention gksudo)

Here's a way to implement Thunar custom actions using rxvt unicode (urxvt) but could be adapted to other terminal emulators. It has been used to provide:
  • Terminal here
  • root terminal here
  • vi
  • vi as root
Optionally it allows the custom action to set background colour and a fullscreen window.

Caveats: the mechanism is "proof of concept" and not widely tested at the time of posting. It is designed for use on a workstation with a single user.

Interesting night

So last night i installed CentOS 5.5.
Installed fine, booted up, spent a few hours trying to set up my dual monitor display to no avail.
With CentOS each time you make a change to the display you have to restart X window system. Which is a pain is the a$$ by the way.
So after a few hours of fiddling with Xorg files, and seeing that CentOS looks a lot like wi98 as far as graphics, i booted back to my fedora and erased what i had just install.

Afterwards, i tried install...

Well, something's gone drastically wrong with my SheevaPlug. I don't know what I did, if I did anything, to cause it. About a couple of weeks ago, I booted up into ARMedslack on the SD card, and instead of the expected Slackware login prompt, I got this:
Code:
/#
After running ls and ls /bin, I realised I was in BusyBox. WTF! I tried rebooting - same again. I tried resetting some environment variables from the SheevaPlug prompt, re-entering those from the ARMedslack installation notes -...

Or, should you stray away from your desk, notifications will appear larger, or the volume will increase. The ability to use facial recognition for login is fairly obvious.
