I’ve gone round and round trying to find a way to open Dolphin as root, or superuser, in order to copy files into write-protected folders. For instance, I want to copy terrain files I’ve downloaded for FlightGear into /user/share/games/FlightGear/Scenery/Terrain. Because this folder belongs to root, I have been unable, until now, to copy anything into it.
Thanks to Bolick on the OpenSuse forums, I now know how to do this with the following command.
kdesu dbus-launch dolphin
