I have followed this discussion as I have the same problem on a Fedora10 box
with KDE 4.3.2 fully updated:
When I change the command line in the program page in the Dolphin desktop file
kdesu 'dolphin %i -caption "%c" %u'
I get a request for root password and then Dolphin runs as root. However, when
trying to invoke kwrite on any file I get:
KDEInit kunde inte starta "/usr/bin/kwrite" which translates to KDEInit could
not start "/usr/bin/kwrite"
Starting Dolphin from a root shell when logged in as another user gives the same
result with some additional output after Dolphin is closed:
[root at oden ~]# dolphin
[root at oden ~]# kDebugStream called after destruction (from void
/builddir/build/BUILD/kdelibs-4.3.2/kio/kio/kdirwatch.cpp line 901)
Cancelled INotify (fd 10, 1) for "/root/.local/share"
[root at oden ~]#
I hope this might help nailing down the problem
