Ah, it cb used with 'startx', which is vital for me. >> So again : Why is running 'xorg-server' as root "heavily discouraged" ? > It's common sense to run software with the least privileges they require, > so if new attack vector is discovered, > perhaps there will be no escalation surface to make use of it. OK, understood. It doesn't look as if there's any genuine danger in continuing to use 'xorg-server' with 'suid' on my single-user system, but if it really is as straightforward to use 'elogind' instead, I may decide to change to that method for the reason you offer.
