pcmanfm-mod cannot open current directory as root (button doesn' work)

Hi, I am trying to use pcmanfm-mod, there is a button on the top at Tools>Open current folder as root. But when I click on it, it does not work (no window pop up and nothing occurs). I have checked the syslog and no info was given. I searched online but the su_cmd=gksu '%s'
option in the config file was terminated a long time ago. I don't understand why they can't just let user set this themselves. As for edit>preferences>advanced, there is no switch user command avialable. I am guessing because this is a pcmanfm-MOD copy. I can get pcmanfm-mod to run as root by
gksu pcmanfm-mod
in terminal.
But if the button would work, it would make my life a lot easier.
