KDE4 root problems

http://forums.opensuse.org – I'd noticed some of this before on 11.1 with KD4 versions but until now, I've had KDE3 options so it hasn't bothered me: If (I know some may not approve but it's there and the way I like to work) If I open Dolphin in SuperUser mode, I can not open a file using KWrite or Kate. , eg. Open with KWrite will give "KDEInit could not launch /usr/bin/kwrite" If I su in a terminal and try to use KWrite or Kate, I get the error messages: "Communication error with launcher. Exiting!". The programs do open though but I can't open files using the menu. If I try, I get a popup window saying "Could not start process. Cannot talk to klauncher. Not connected to D-Bus server." Any ideas how to resolve this? (Distributions)
