Running su'd applications
I have an xterm logged into Linux (using ssh) and displayed on my Windows desktop. All is lovely.
If I then try and execute 'sudo ethereal', no application window is displayed; instead I get
The application 'ethereal' lost its connection to the display localhost:13.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
Similar results are obtained if I 'su' and then just try and run 'ethereal'.
I have no X-server problems running ethereal under my logged-in identity, but alas, that won't let me capture network traffic.
I suppose this is some sort of protection problem, but what to do about it?
Program Ver. : Xmanager 3.0
