I use gnome and there is not a single thing I can not do with a root account that I can't with one. If you mean opening GUI apps try adding the following (I am assuming your using tcsh... if your using something else look up how to do this): in ~/.cshrc add: xhost + in /root/.cshr add: setenv DISPLAY :0 When you su *ALWAYS* use the following syntax: su - *DO NOT* include any cmd arguement. Once your root you should be able to start any GUI based app from the command line... if you don't know what the command line is left click on the menu/icon and go to properties... if it requires arguements look it up in the man page or the GNOME help for it. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
