If you mean a konsole shorcut that used to be launched as root (Super 
user mode) it should be still there (btw, I never understood what was 
this intended for, it just only saves you from typing 4 characters "su  
-" :-P).

Under the classical menu, look into System or Utilities and if it's not 
there anymore, you can easily add a new menu item to launch it.

If you looked for the applet itself, I'm not sure it has been ported to 
plasma... maybe you can take a look into kde-apps¹ and search for a 
plasmoid that performs the same task.
