Description lglewis 2000-06-20 22:48:56 UTC
I am trying to use kppp to log into my ISP. I configured it under root. When I try to use it with a non-root account, it asks for the root password. Once that password is given, kppp just vanishes. I tried running it under kconsole, and the following error msg was given: Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server kppp: cannot connect to X server :0 I reported this bug to KDE, and got the response that it is caused by the way kppp is installed in RH 6.2. They suggest a workaround, but one that may have some sercurity problems. Is there a better fix?

Change the line "SESSION=false" in /etc/security/console.apps/kppp to "SESSION=true". This is done in the current Rawhide packages.
