sudo does not run root's shell at all; it directly runs whatever is given it on the commandline. Workarounds include creating an alias that includes sudo in it (alias rootpicom='sudo pico -m'), or creating a shell script that runs what your alias would have, so you can run "sudo picom": /usr/local/bin/picom #! /bin/sh pico -m "$@" -- Dan Nelson dnel...@allantgroup.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
