[trinity-users] TDE mediamanager - missing in root Konqueror ?

So this is a brand-new thread, because I want to set a good example for 
others. (That's me, a role model to the youth ...) 

I encountered a problem in the newest version of Konqueror that did not seem 
to exist in the older versions, so far as I know. 

When I want to inspect my hard drives (internal/external, mounted/unmounted), 
I found it is sometimes useful to enter, in the address bar:


This gives me information about my drives at a glance, as well as allowing 
access to various tools and settings for working with those disks and 
partitions. I don't use it often (relatively speaking), but now I find that I 
cannot use it at all when running Konqueror as root. 

See attachments for screenshots. (Note that my weird colors in root are 
intentional; I override some settings to make it easier on my old eyes.) I 
already tested this on a fresh installation, before applying any customized 

When it's not there, I find that I need to use it much more than I remember. 

I am sure that there are other ways to obtain the same information, other ways 
to accomplish the same things -- and I would be glad to hear them -- but for 
now, however, I really want to retrieve these tools. I have installed some 
new hard drives, and as usual, they need some help in finding their proper 
place in my system. 

Thanks for any help or suggestions!
