hi there,

i don't know if i understood correct.
supposing a terminal environment, you can
Code:
xhost +
export DISPLAY wherever:0.0
now you call from the terminal your application.
or if you mean, with loggin in as root, you should take a look at
Code:
man sudo
i am not sure if i understood well your question..
hope it helps...

regards

hi there,

clear now!
you only need to xhost + && export DISPLAY .
for the correct syntax i suggest a look at the man page of your shell.
ex
Code:
export DISPLAY=YOUR_HOST:0.0
should work for bash.

regards
