Cant launch Ethereal in Gnome as root.
I recently changed distros from RH9 to Slackware 10. So far I am quite impressed with what I have seen except from a couple of niggling points. When I create a launcher on my toolbar, for instance Ethereal, it only loads it with my own permissions. Which is a nuisance as you can imagine, as it needs root privilages to operate properly. I use Dropline Gnome as my desktop but I noticed that if I am in KDE when I create a launcher for the program, it automatically prompts me for the root password ( which doesn't happen in Gnome ). Anyone?
Thanks in advance for any help....
