    AFAIK you can't. Not in KDE, not in GNOME.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    the colour background of KDE applications can be changed globally from

    system settings > application appearance > colours

    Keep in mind that this will change the background colour of more than just dolphin.

    In a term window,
    Code:
       kdesu systemsettings
    This will affect all windows running as root, as mentioned above.

    I run this and change the default background for user=root to a bright pink, to remind myself I am ROOT.
    I found dark red made some apps hard to read.
    Pick a color that works for you.
