I am wanting to keep an xconsole open on my desktop. When I open an xterm and use su to launch it, it dies. When I am logged into X as a root however everything works fine. I don't want to have to be logged in as root all the time.
This is the command I am using to start the xconsole:
xconsole -notify -nostdin -verbose -exitOnFail
If it makes a difference I am using Gnome with Sawfish as my window manager.
