I would like to start some utils easely from GNOME desktop (openSUSE 10.3). But some utils don't work correctly if they don't run as root - e.g. baobab. When I set the s-bit to let them always run with owner rights GNOME doesn't start them anymore. Starting baobab from a root shell works well. Is there a setting anywhere was allows this?

Start it from an xterm, and you will see why:

]cer@nimrodel:~> l /usr/bin/baobab
]-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 114344 2007-09-25 22:11 /usr/bin/baobab*

It might work using sudo instead [...] no, it doesn't, but it is a diferent problem:


]cer@nimrodel:~> sudo baobab
]cer's password:
]
](baobab:22629): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

It does work via "gnomesu baobab", which needs the root password.
