    Default Root privileges to access filesystem

    Recently (last week or 2), every time I try and open ANYTHING in the filesystem (even stuff in my personal directory), I get a root authorisation login box ("The action you requested needs root privileges, etc, etc")
    Anybody know what the issue is?

    Leap15, KDE/Plasma, Latest patches (I believe...)
    i5/8GB
    openSuse Leap15.1
    KDE Plasma 5.12.8 (and Gnome - In training!)
    Linux Counter 130995

    Default Re: Root privileges to access filesystem

    A few questions (because we are not clairvoyant ).

    You try to open with what?

    Which file system?

    Default Re: Root privileges to access filesystem

    Worked it out (sort of)...
    Somehow (not to my knowledge ) the default link for directories had been changed to "super-user" mode. Am sure I was innocent...
    Thanks.
