Access E17 File Manager as root

Hi Everyone,

I'm having trouble in finding out which command line to use to access the root part of the E17 file manager - I've tried gksu enlightenment but that didn't work could anybody help if possible.

I think i remember a quote by rasterman himself that in order to access EFM as root enlightenment has to run as root since the FM is integrated in it. Or something along these lines. I might be wrong so better wait people knowing E17 better than me.

Confirmed. The command (optionally followed by a path) is

enlightenment-remote -efm-open-dir

That command line isn't valid on my terminal is just coming up as "bash: enlightenment-remote: command not found" - is there anyone else who uses E17 Desktop Environment who knows how to access the root file manager.
