-sorry, I guess I should have explained better.

-When I launch d1x (descent) I get the following:

You must be the owner of the current console to use svgalib.
Not running in a graphics capable console,
and unable to find one.
svgalib: cannot get keyboard mode.

Error: SVGAlib Keyboard Init Failed

Error: SVGAlib Keyboard Init Failed

-I can only play it as su

-I mean an easy fix would be just to create a shortcut to it as su, but I think I saw a way (once) to make the SDL/SVGA work for all users. . .
