    Default Re: Running irc as non-root

    I had to do xhost + before the Su command, but it is not too secure. I wonder of there's a better way....thinking maybe ssh -x?

    This is the old forums but I think it's probably going to be similar to what you need to do to BT5 to run programs as a unprivileged user.

    I run IRC on another box entirely.

    thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm going to use xchat and xhost + to allow it to have access to the root x session when I need to use irc on my backtrack box. I want to try ssh with -X switch to see how that works when I get some time, but anyways thanks again for everyones responses
