2 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.)

I have it installed for more than a year in kde neon plasma and it works stably, the root is dangerous if you use it by default, be careful

Yes,everything is quite simple :make the dsecktop executable file by opening properties --->rights-->set check-box is executable, copy it to /usr/share/applications/ (for all users) or to /home/%user name%/.local/share/applications/(only for your account ((login)) (where your Unix OS's dsecktop files are owned and stored. After that, the app will appear in the app launch menu.

Hello. After opening Dolphin as root - it works of course - but it seems my entire session switches user to root. Every hotkey combination is starting apps as root - Dolphin and Konsole, as ones. Only reboot, or session end reset this

About the "this is dangerous" comments.
Yes, it is. But Dolphin itself warns you with "Running Dolphin as root can be dangerous. Please be careful."
Of course it should be used "sparingly". I use Dolphin (or Krusader) as root maybe once every three months :·)
Basically, if I have to copy/move *a lot* of files to protected places.

The Ministry of health no longer warns :-) it just closed the ability to run dolphin with root rights starting from version 17 (as well as the ability to run Kaku and kwrite):-(. PS on Mandrive Lx3 Zver everything still works only issues a terrible warning and colors the screen red when you log In as root in the OS.
Минздрав уже не предупреждает :-) он просто закрыл возможность выполнения dolphin c правами root начиная с версии 17 (так-же как и возможность выполнения каte и kwrite) :-( .
PS На Madrive Lx 3 Zver все по прежнему работает, хотя версия 19, лишь выдаёт грозное предупреждение и окрашивает экран красным цветом при входе под логином root в ос.

4 soso Though this is sadly missing with KDE (the ability, for example, to open up your /usr/share/backgrounds folder and take out one or two naff wallpapers, making dolphin do things you otherwise must do in terminal... This just didn't work for me. I browsed to /usr/share and selected 'open as root', entered password and ...... NOTHING happened.

It's a security hole and makes users interact with their system in harmful patterns.
