Open Dolphin as root

Dolphin Service Menus by loup 32 comments

This service has completely messed up my KDE neon installation, to the point of having to use Timeshift to revert. The first time I clicked "Open as root" in the service menu and entered my user password, nothing happened. The second time, it did work (opened a new Dolphin window as root). The third time, my plasma session crashed and most KDE settings were destroyed. Not good! (yes, I know what "root" means, I pretty much AM root in my whole LIFE :D so I didn't do anything that has to do with having "too much root". The destruction ensued merely after simply using "Open as root" three times, without doing anything else.) - Jan 16 2021
