Single click to open not working in Dolphin

Problem

I recently upgraded a Kubuntu 15.10 operating system to Kubuntu 16.04. I used to use single-click to open files and directories in the Dolphin file manager. This stopped working after the upgrade. Only double-click would open files and directories.

Solution

$ cat ~/.config/kdeglobals | grep SingleClick
SingleClick=true
$ sudo apt install dolphin4
$ dolphin4
