Description Sol 2017-11-03 19:45:27 UTC
This bug started happening to me after doing a dist-upgrade from Kubuntu 17.04 to 17.10, dolphin can no longer be run as root using kdesudo. Trying the command returns:

"Executing Dolphin as root is not possible."

Steps to Reproduce:
Just run `kdesudo dolphin` either on a konsole or on krunner

Expected results
Dolphin open as root, and therefore all command run from it run as root.

Actual results
Dolphin doesn't run and shows the above message.

This is intended behavior
