Re: How to 'su' to root from a script using Xdialog?

You could use 'sux', but you need to install that program.

Or you can do this:

/bin/su - $USER -c command

With this you will avoid $DISPLAY problems.

"sux" does this, though it is somewhat limited. E.g. if you "ssh -X" to
the target and run sux there, it won't work.
