Description John 2022-05-02 16:44:44 UTC
Dolphin won't allow me to create a folder and new config file in /etc by using my password, as is possible in every Linux OS i've used, which as an ADHDer is pretty important.
NOTE: If you are reporting a crash, please try to attach a backtrace with debug symbols.
See https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Debugging/How_to_create_useful_crash_reports

1. open dolphin
2. right click to add a new folder in /etc so i can add or edit a config file

no option to complete action with the SAME DAMN PASSWORD I'D USE TO DO IT IN THE F*NG CLI
I open dolphin, copy the path, paste it into terminal, create the folder, then using terminal open gedit - crap i haven't used an editor like this in 15 years, stop, decide design this bad isn't worth my time and start looking for a KDE replacement again (was this why I stopped b4?), then submit it as a bug, because this is not a feature if  I am definitely trying to do this on purpose
Let's not pretend the problem is more important than it is.
Just give an option at setup / install to enable or disable. 

create the folder using the GUI (which is part of the OS) and enter the appropriate password
I have ADHD & using the CLI for certain things without being able to SEE the files structure is not useful. Also, two clicks of a mouse + typing a password vs typing out how many characters poorly, then retyping? I'm running a home desktop PC, not critical infrastructure; I'll take responsibility for my own system.
