not so trivial for a newby like me, I made (or only thinked to made :-))
a lot of time ago and don't remember how, I'm trying now but my best
effort is to use kde servicemenus, something like this that open a
folder as the user "segreto":

[Desktop Entry]

[Desktop Action OpenAsSegreto]
Exec=kdesu -u segreto -n -i face-angel dolphin %U
Name=Open as Segreto

how can I have the menu voice "open as segreto" in the main popup and
not in the action submenu?

and better how can I have the kdesu window with password to insert into
for the user "segreto" opened when I click on the folder I chosen??

thanksforeverything :-)
