    Right, this patch just re-enables running Dolphin as the actual root user (not sudo/kdesu) to fix Kali and other legitimate root user use cases. PolKit support in KIO is definitely the preferred solution for when using Dolphin with a normal user account.
    (The polkit support should be somewhat closer than "on the horizon" now.)

    Progress is being made... I'll hang on and see what this change actually feels like when it gets here...

    Nice to see this development of Dolphin.

    I came to this tread because I needed to rename the mount point of a partition.
    Editing /etc/fstab with Kate was easy enough but I had trouble remembering the the command sequence for a root rename.

    Eventually I used Krusader and although it would not allow the rename it did allow me to enter a new mount point.

    Btw, dbus-x11 is present on 20.04...

    Hi. If you are running KDE you can edit fstab easily with Kate. After amending the mount point, Kate will now automatically request your root password if required by the ownership/directory rights of the target directory in this case /etc/.
