Hi All,

I have this odd issue where no kde4 (though I have no other versions installed) applications
will run when I su (or su user). I setup all the environment variables that had kde in them
under the su environment to see if that made a difference, no luck. I've also tried adding
xhost local:localhost and that made no difference. And both at once. Then I tried running
dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session
after su user and then launching an app. Didn't help either.

I'm pretty sure it's not xorg related as pidgin and inkscape both launch fine as su user. I'm
out of ideas now so any suggestions would be great.

Cheers,

Alan.

Does it work using kdesu (from your normal user account)?
