Description Florian Weimer 2019-08-07 11:44:31 UTC
Running “baobab /var/log” results in this error message on my system:

Could not scan some of the folders contained in “/var/log”

Error opening directory '/var/log/swtpm/libvirt/qemu': Permission denied

Using sudo does not work either:

$ sudo baobab /var/log
No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(baobab:11041): Gtk-WARNING **: 13:42:08.298: cannot open display: :0
