User ID 0 is root. 1000 is 'you'

Your problem is for some reason you are trying to start dolphin as root

steven at steven-desktop:~$ sudo dolphin

why are you doing this ?

Just start as your normal user

steven at steven-desktop:~$ dolphin

No idea. You don't say why you are starting dolphin, or why you are 
trying to do it as root...
