    It is good for my health I did not notice that thread because it is full of awfull things .

    Sorry, I will not start to venture into it from this thread, it being utterly off topic. The only thing is, why is such a howto not even mentioning the SDB I showed above? The noob will have a difficult time to understand all the well meant contradictionary advice here.

    Said link has been blank for me for two days.

    And if my advice is wrong, please do tell me - I will defer to more knowledgeable judgement on this one.

    But I've been told that the reason you need gnomesu and kdesu (apart from when something outright won't run in the first place) is to avoid the cross-contamination of permissions / ownership caused by running something as one user but in another's environment. And I *believe* that I've been told that that isn't an issue with an 'su -', ergo that if it runs, it's fine.

    @Confuseling
    You are right. The link is dead. Worse, the whole SDB is dead

    I saw that they went over to new systems, new wiki software, etc. Let us hope everything will come back in due time, else a lot of errort will be lost.

    Before we hyjack somebody else's thread I will go over to the other thread, read it carfully and comment on it tomorrow. Is that OK?
    (might be later on the day tomorrrow, I have things to do)

    No rush by me!

    If doing that breaks it, I've broken it by now...
