kppp can't be used by non-root users
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
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
This is done in the current Rawhide packages.
