@Ken-Miller127 said in "Executing Dolphin as root is not possible":
Thanks for the reply, @just. I’ll add the repo. Question: Will you upload the PKGBUILD to the AUR at some point,…
Stop, don’t move :-) . I have no relation neither to these two pkgs, nor to any development in Antergos in general. I’m an ordinary user only, as anybody else, not an Antergos dev.
Two pkgs were developed by @karasu. He is one of two Antergos devs.
Your question is not for me.
or do you intend to see if upstream first addresses the issues?
I doubt that Arch will decide to patch dolphin, kate, kwrite on its own. I think Arch will strictly follow what Kde-Gräßlin has to offer. I.e., no root in dolphin, kate, kwrite. I see no signs that Gräßlin might change his idea about limiting root access.
Other distros most ptobably will patch three packages, to allow root usage. Tumbleweed (openSUSE) has done it the same day when limited pkgs were arrived from Kde Project. Antergos is doing it now.
For an experienced user, using the ‘proper’ commands is no problem. However, it would be awkward as all get-out for a newcomer to Plasma or Linux.
I’ve also posted regarding these two packages in the Manjaro forums,
Yes, I saw your post there, @c00ter ;-) . We keep our niks since Evolution times :-) .
and one of their developers–@strit–expressed interest in it as well as several users, so it appears it could benefit the wider community, as well.
Again, it’s not a question for me, I’m sorry. All Antergos sources are on GitHub. I hope that Antergos devs will be happy to share their work with other distros. All Antergos decisions are made only by them.
