  • sudo resets the environment by default so the DISPLAY environment variable is not set when dolphin is run. In addition, mounting using dolphin as root will not allow you to access the files that are not accessible as normal users in the filesystem. – Didi Kohen Jan 1 '15 at 15:05
  • When not running as root, I think you need more info about the error dolphin returns. Is there a log file with more info, or does running dolphin in a terminal show anything useful? And did this ever work fine, "before" something happened? Is the drive being mounted even in fstab? – Xen2050 Jan 1 '15 at 20:41
