I probably am mistaken but if I remember correctly from what I read Dolphin does
not have a super user mode.  Maybe Kevin or Rex can shed some light on this.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-27 19:57:46 EDT
There's no menu entry for it, but of course Dolphin is expected to work when 
run through kdesu!
Comment 4 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-27 20:12:11 EDT
See I knew I was mistaken. I did check upstream and did not find any matching bugs.
