Is there a way to set it to open with root privileges?

Hope I understand what you asked :)

Open the K menu editor /system/Terminal
Choose the one you want to open as root
check run as different users
username: root


The next time you click it will ask you for the root password and open
the terminal as root.

Nope. You completely misunderstood the problem.

The OP does not want to ALWAYS open that terminal program as root.

The problem is that when you run file manager (Dolphin) in super user mode
any task launched from dolphin should also run as super user.

So, if you clicked an rpm it should install it without asking for
a password again. If you navigated to /root, you should be able to
open any text file you have laying around in there by just clicking it.

But you can't because the subordinate task is launched from Dolphin as
USER instead of Root.
