Dolphin or Kate as root... Broken

I agree this is barmy. The way I work round this is to install:

thunar

&

featherpad

Then start thunar in a terminal window with the command:

sudo thunar

Using featerpad (as a replacement for kate) to make the required file changes.

installing qapt-deb-installer worked perfectly

qapt doesn't list dependencies like gdebi.


qApt show if there is a dependencies problem and solve it by itself. But I think it's true, there is no list of them... I used gdebi with Mint during years and it's a very simple and efficient program.
It's probably a mistake but I dislike use gnome programs with KDE (even if they are good) because I'm not confident about dependencies.

While KDE is pretty awesome (just switched from Mate this week), it seems KDE is having some serious issues. Some on purpose, some not...
On line accounts... Broken
Discover install .deb... Broken
Dolphin or Kate as root... Broken (don't lecture me about dangerous please. dangerous is driving a motorcycle 200MPH on a public highway. modifying system files on my computer... not dangerous)
Kio Gdrive... Broken
Kio Skype, Telegram, Lync... Broken

other then these critical services KDE is awesome!!


On line account => Yes it's a shame... Waiting for new version
Discover : for me it's a buggy software. Muon (or synaptic) are better but not as visual... Discover really need to be implemented like Gnome/Mint software packages
Kio Gdrive : fail for me too it's a shame :'(
Skype : I installed snap version and it works well. Lync = Skype no ? Telegram has official snap package but I don't use it.

Dolphin as root : you could install a Dolphin service https://store.kde.org/p/1384645/
Kate as root : not needed ! Open your file in the normal way, even if it's a root file (by double-clic or by browse in Kate). When you modify and save, you will have to enter your root password and it's done ;)

The problem with installing debs via Discover seems to have been fixed in the latest Plasma 5.20.2 bugfix release just put out.
