Fix for Dolphin missing right-click service menu

Just after Kubuntu 15.10 update new KDE i have met a bug – Dolphin lost his service menu – “Extract to..”, “Edit as root”, etc

This bug is popular and discussing in stackowerflow. The problem is – KDE plugins has been moved from /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ to /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/. But described solution to move service is not enouth , plugin describe file is also missing for KonqPopupMenu/Plugin. So in new kubuntu version problem is fixed like this:


Try to use my service menu files:

  • HEX edit (opens okteta on selected file)
  • Text edit (opens kate on selected file)
  • Text edit as root (opens kate on selected file from root)


Download dolphin-services. For install extract to ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
