Firestarter

I can't use Firestarter as an user because I don't have priveleges, but if I su root and try to run the program then I get this message:

[root@pc luisqr]# /opt/gnome/bin/firestarter
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

(firestarter:2386): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

So how can I monitor hits while I'm working as user?

Re: Firestarter

Use either 'su' instead of 'su -' or install and configure sudo.  I prefer sudo... but that's just me.

Re: Firestarter

Had the same problem...

As user type: $xhost +
As root: #DISPLAY=localhost:0.0

To go back to user do it inverse.

Re: Firestarter

You gotta use sudo.  Gotta get that firewall up quick!  Don't wanna be messing around with no password!

1) pacman -S sudo

2) visudo

#
#       Defaults
#
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Defaults        log_year, logfile=/var/log/sudolog
Defaults        timestamp_timeout=0
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
#       Main
#
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
froggie ALL = (root) NOPASSWD:/opt/gnome/bin/firestarter
#

3) sudo firestarter

If you have gksu installed, there appears a second menuentry in DE's that
honour the .desktop file magics, such as xfce4 does.
