Thread: Two Different Dolphins

  1. #1

    Default Two Different Dolphins

    My normal-mode Dolphin looks like this and totally respects my theme and color scheme settings.


    But my Super-User mode Dolphin looks like this and totally doesn't respect my theme and color scheme settings.



    How do I change its settings so it matches my normal Dolphin's look, which is currently set to Breeze ?

    the above uses breeze and the root mode uses oxygen
    imo there are 2 probabilities
    #1 you have 2 versions of dolphin and the regular user uses dolphin from kde 5 and the su user uses the old kde 4 dolphin there is an issue with the kde menu, if this is the case you have mixed-up packages are you using wolfy's kde5 repo?
    #2 you've installed breeze for kde4 and su mode defaults to oxygen, that's normal as oxygen is the default theme for kde4.

    Super-user mode Dolphin is respecting the theme and color scheme settings
    of the user it runs as - root.

    You change root's theme and color scheme to address this.

    That said, I would not be inclined to do so, because in general, you
    shouldn't need to use Super-user mode Dolphin, and having a different
    color scheme/theme is a good visual indicator of when you're using the
    super-user instance.

    Yes. Changing root's theme did the job. Thank you.

    I support Jim. It is a bad idea.

    I always set mine ver distinctly different so I know I'm root. You should only be root when you absolutely have too and not a minute longer. You can severely damage stuff when root and thinking you are a user.
