this is a followup question to this thread:

How to run Dolphin as root?

the font size displayed when running dolphin as root is very small. the option to configure font size is also grayed-out.

i tried this solution for an early version of dolphin but it didn't work in this case. from:


kate /home/steven/Templates/bigMenuFont.qss and press Enter.

Type: QMenuBar { font-size: 24px } QMenu { font-size: 24px }

Save and Close Kate.

Press Alt+F2 and type: kdesudo 'dolphin -stylesheet /home/steven/Templates/bigMenuFont.qss'
