[opensuse-factory] TW: su -; DISPLAY missing; .Xauthority 0 bytes
Not sure which update this happened in, but in TW you no longer get the DISPLAY variable set when issuing an su - command. Also the .Xauthority files seems empty as well when you switch to the root user. I now have to copy my .Xauthority file over from my standard user account and then export my DISPLAY variable to run gfx tools as root user.
Thoughts as to why this has now changed.
