I am running a fairly current version of Kubuntu...
Kernel: 4.13.0-36-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.10.5 Distro: Ubuntu 17.10
In all the "KDE" distros I've used in the past I could easily run "gui" apps with elevated credentials: ie. "sudo dolphin", "kdesu dolphin", etc.
With kubuntu I cannot get any of these to work. I managed to do a cli "cp" to get some scripts moved to /usr/local/bin but I'm not a Linux tekkie so it was a real fight for me. If I can't get the apps I normally use to run "elevated" on those rare occasions when I have that need then kubuntu is not a good fit for me. Is there a way I can continue using kubuntu and do what I need to do?
Specifically: I need to run Dolphin with root privileges.
