Revision history [back]

This is actually a new "feature" of Dolphin. The check his hard coded in Dolphin source -- https://cgit.kde.org/dolphin.git/commit/?id=0bdd8e0b0516555c6233fdc7901e9b417cf89 -- and it is not possible to change it (without recompiling Dolphin).

Martin Gräßlin's blog explaining this change -- https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2017/02/editing-files-as-root/ (for Kate, but Dolphin change is result of this).

If you want to run file as root I suggest Midnight Commander.
