    you need to edit
    /usr/share/applications/org.kde.dolphinsu.desktop
    and change line 5 to point to the new icon (just a name if it's in
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    Name=File Manager - Super User Mode
    Exec=dbus-launch dolphin -qwindowtitle "%c" "%u"
    Icon=system-file-manager
    Type=Application
    X-DocPath=dolphin/index.html
    Categories=Qt;KDE;System;FileManager;
    Terminal=false
    MimeType=inode/directory;
    X-KDE-SubstituteUID=true
    or make a new launcher with the same name in your home
    Code:
    kate ~/.local/share/applications/org.kde.dolphinsu.desktop
    paste the above text there and change line 5 to point to a different icon/image
    you absolute path to preserve the icon across different desktop icon sets (breeze or oxygen)
    edit
    you can copy the current blue (breeze) icon to your home then edit it with gimp change it's color to red save it and change line 5 to point to that svg Icon=/to/that/svg

    You could try changing your Workspace/Icons themes. I am using Breeze and Oxygen which gives a red Konsole icon for super-user mode and black in normal mode.
    ~Thank you for sharing an interesting problem.

    that wont work because the icon is defined in the desktop file
    I forgot that kde has a menu editor, you can eather right-click the main menu and select "Edit Applications..."
    or in a terminal run
    Code:
    kmenuedit
    you can pick the proffered icon there, for example there is a nice magenta folder icon in the places group that you can use


    edit
    I didn't notice it but there is a red folder icon perfect for super user dolphin just bellow the orange one (way too lazy for a new screenshot)

    in the meantime I abandoned tumbleweed becouse it was unusable without nvidia drivers and I don't like install it in the hard way, and also I installed it in a btrfs partition that during update ran out of space and the system broken, now I'm on leap 42.2 and maaaanythanks, it works perfectly
