What's on the ext4 partition? Data? Another operating system? How have you tried to access it? Do you have a mount point for it? Is it mounted? I don't have Kubuntu so I don't know where you access the terminal, probably the Menu icon?? get your partition information using this command as root (sudo): sudo fdisk -l (lower case letter L in the command). Also, take a look at the /etc/fstab file to see what you have. If you don't understand it, post it here.

Well, you can write to it only as root. And if you open dolphin as a normal user, you don't have root-permissions.
There are two ways: write to the partition as root on the commandline, or create folders as root and change the owner of the folders to the normal user which then will have write-permissions within the folders
