I am using Debain Potato (rel 0) on a Sony Vaio PCG-C1F laptop.
I would like to be able to run:
cardctl eject | cardctl scheme | cardctl insert
from a normal user account. I have tried using the following command,
which prompts for roots password and then should run the command:
su - root -c cardctl eject
This results in an error as shown in the output below:
sjrowe@vaio-sr:~$ su - root -c cardctl eject
usage: cardctl command [socket #]
or cardctl [-c configpath] [-f scheme] [-s stab] scheme [name]
commands: status config ident suspend resume reset eject insert
The command works ok with other utilities where an argument is being
passed, so I am not sure why it fails with cardctl?
I have tried it specifying the socket number too -just in case!
Any suggestions, alternative methods (sudo I suppose??) would be great.
Thanks for you help
