At the moment it is possible to gain root access to the device using devel-su. However in order to allow a bash script to du things with root power I am looking for a 'sudo' like solution. Is there something like this possible? And if yes, how exactly?

You have to get them from mer-tools:

devel-su
ssu ar mer-tools
pkcon refresh
pkcon install sudo

Unfortunately sudo is not working out of the box :(

I had to make a link to get visudo working because environment varible for editor is not in correct directory:

devel-su
ln /bin/vi /usr/bin/vi

Then it is possible to add nemo as sudoer by 'visudo' :or an other editor of you choice (e.g. nano):

nemo ALL=(ALL) ALL

Hi @SaimenSays, thanks for your investigation. :) I added your description directly to the answer. Ciao jukey

Slightly less intrusive:

EDITOR=/bin/vi visudo

should also work just fine.

And while we're being non-intrusive: You may want to add your own file to /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of editing /etc/sudoers:

EDITOR=/bin/vi visudo -f /etc/sudoers.d/my-personal-settings

I am trying to do this, but forgive me, I am new to writing a sudoers file. I tried, but got an error message advising me to use visudo, which I thought I was. I am unsure of what EDITOR means. If possible, could you please kindly give the full (non-intrusive) string to add nemo to the sudoers file? thank you in advance.
