    Did anyone ever bother to configure their setup as root?
    I would guess that once this is done it will stop popping up.

    Don't do it!!!!! I sense the root is dangerous! Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.It's a path that leads to the dark side - the pentesting side !

    (For all those that are about to start posting on root being dangerous.)

    Backtrack is meant to be run as root. Its to hard for us to worry about other users so we only worry about making our stuff work as root. Anything else and you are on your own.

    have you tried looking at your boot log?

    I checked to see which groups I was a member of (to make sure I was a member of "admin"), changed the permissions on that file to allow the group owner "write" permission, and finally changed the group ownership of this file.

    respectively:
    Code:
    $ groups
    
    $ sudo chmod 775  /opt/kde3/bin/krandrtray
    
    $ sudo chgrp admin /opt/kde3/bin/krandrtray
    There may be a more correct way of doing this inside of the window manager, but I'm not a KDE user. This worked for me.
