    I'm not happy with this decision either, but I don't use it dolphin as root much so I won't go to the drastic step of dropping kde.
    In any case, if you really need root access you can still use konqueror (for now) which ironically uses dolphin for its file manager.

    it will happen to all gui apps, kate/kwrite also. Its required to profit from the new security enabled by wayland.

    That means that the Superuser can only edit using Konsole and vi?

    But wait, using Konsole as root will then also be blocked I assume.

    and to make things even safer nobody will be allowed to use KDE at all .

    Guess i will have to give XFCE another try (after more than 15 years of KDE ).

    the only way to write in superuser mode will be hammer and chisel ... and root will be changed in rude...

    Sadly this is true, kwrite already stopped working as root after the latest update. Time to learn somthing new.

    you can read kde dev talk about kate changes, root edit functionality will be provided by "sudoedit" (was new to me), not the end of the world but they could have provided a smoother workflow.
