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 23:57:46 UTC
There's no menu entry for it, but of course Dolphin is expected to work when 
run through kdesu!

Comment 4 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-28 00:12:11 UTC
See I knew I was mistaken. I did check upstream and did not find any matching bugs.

Comment 5 Cepreu 2008-06-28 01:49:26 UTC
