X session crashes when starting a kde program with sudo (from within a KDE desktop)
Last modified: 2009-07-22 09:12:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running KDE as my desktop and sometimes I need to start another KDE program as root. P.e. 'sudo konqueror' kills my X immediately after pressing OK in the window that informs you that ksmserver can't be started.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can't reproduce, but fwiw, "don't do that!" :)
that's what kdesu is for...
Closing as NOTABUG.
