The Konqueror and Falkon from Plasma5 does not work as root without QTWEBENGINE_DISABLE_SANDBOX=1 - how to setup this only for root?

Like title says, the QtWebEngine refuses to work in a X11 session while logged in as root, lamenting about sandboxing.

How is possibile to setup the environment variable QTWEBENGINE_DISABLE_SANDBOX=1 only when I am logged in as root on a Plasma5 session from SDDM?

Apparently this environment variable is needed to permit to launch Konqueror while logged in as root.

export QTWEBENGINE_DISABLE_SANDBOX=1 in /root/.profile ought to do it no matter which session type you run Konq in. Accessing the web via root login is dangerous, hence the special requirement to enable taking that risk.

Well, I wanted to enable this only on the Plasma5 sessions, but also this generic solution is so far so good. Thanks!
