im not sure if its the best or correct way, but i was able to run an app (not ddd, i dont have that on my system) as root by doing this: (as my user) xhost + (then su - up to root) xcalc -display :0 nothing else to it. also, you might take a look at the man for xhost to see how to narrow down the access, because the '+' only gives you a nice little "you are now wide open for connections" message. cheers, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org freebsd08 [EMAIL PROTECTED] dfwlp.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
