Re: cannot run X apps when 'su'

Hi all

Don't know if it's been mentioned on this thread yet, but Francois Gouget 
wrote a script, sux[1], to transfer $DISPLAY and X cookies so X apps work 
fine when assuming another user's identity. Details were posted here[2] 
about a year ago and I've appreciated it ever since. Just use it as a 
drop in replacement for su.
