I don't believe this has been addressed before - I've searched.

I have a few service menus that use pkexec. They work just fine on neon.

On Kubuntu 20.04, I used one. No pkexec pop-up.
I tried them all. No pkexec pop-up.
If I try pkexec from konsole, it works.
As a Dolphin service menu, it does not.

So: the same exact service menus work on neon and K18 and not on K20 (they share the same /home).
I have groogled around extensively and found nothing.

I tried it on K20.04 on the laptop. Practically virgin installation (never use it). They don't work.
I tried it on Kubuntu 18.04. They work just fine.
Now, has nobody really noticed that pkexec doesn't work with service menus on Kubuntu 20.04?
Or what's going on?

If anyone would like to try and hasn't got one handy that needs pkexec, here's a simple one to "touch" root-owned files.

[Desktop Action stouch]
Name=Sudo touch
Exec=pkexec touch %f; kdialog --title="Touch" --passivepopup="Touched";fi
