    Default Python App permission issue

    I am working with an application that is written in Python.
    It makes use of pyusb and libusb. The application when launched
    in a user account tells me it cannot access the USB port. When
    I launch it via an icon I create on the desktop and tell it to
    run in terminal it accesses the USB device but the GUI does not launch.
    I thought maybe I could launch the app as root using sudo and it might
    work, but I get a problem with '$DISPLAY is not set'. I am trying to reach
    the author of the app but have not been successful yet. It says the app was
    written for Ubuntu, but you can manually assemble the bits to work on SuSE.
    http://centurion-cd.com/centurion-alliance.html If I could just get
    the permission issue sorted.
