    Ahh..I just checked. When I do run Kate on a system file, I get prompted when I save to enter the sudo credentials. You are correct - I did not run it as root. I ran it as a user and then when saved, entered the root password. I, as the politicians would say, I mis-remembered. Although I forgot and they usually mean "I am lying."

    Interesting...I am running KDE Neon and I have not had an issue - although to be honest, I may have tweaked something. I am on my work computer now, so I cannot check.

    Why not just use it then?

    Alternatively, one can just make Plasma into a Unity clone (A quick search shows multiple ways to do this in Plasma)

    The first thing I do is replacing the "Application Launcher" with "Application Menu" - way less clicks and much more organised. I wish it would be the default.

    Other than that I am totally stoked for the upcoming updates!
    I do that too. That's why we use KDE: there's no one size fits all.

    But why do we need a scrollbar by default in the new launcher :-( The menu is not even re-sizeable...

    Looks like they just ported over Lancelot's code, re-organized a few things and called it a day.

Because of that, I switched to another editor after this "patch" got upstream. If you really don't trust on your own code, then simply implement a right-dropping mode with the exception to the to be edited file and directory.
    I agree. I too use text editors and Krusader as root, so not being able to use Kate as root is hindering my workflow.
