How to setup root actions in dolphin / jaunty

When I upgraded from Hardy to Intrepid I noticed that the root actions were gone from the context menu in dolphin (used to be in konqui).

Finally I found out that someone else made a fix for this using perl. Here it is:

  1. edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file with
     sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list or with kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. add the following lines:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/samrog131/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/samrog131/ubuntu jaunty main
  3. update your repo and install the package with
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install servicemenu-rootactions.
  4. if you need to add the gpg-key of that repo, try the following:
    gpg --keyserver hkp://subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys  A47958D42B7E03A7
    gpg --export --armor A47958D42B7E03A7 | sudo apt-key add -

Easy Peasy!
