Ticket #2956 (closed defect: fixed)
Cannot start Virtualbox as root user
|Reported by:||stevie_davies||Owned by:|
Using 2.0.6 I could start Virtualbox as root user. After upgrading to 2.1.0 when I try and run Virtualbox I get the following message:
No protocol specified Qt WARNING: VirtualBox: cannot connect to X server :0.0
Am logged into Gnome with terminal open with local console. Am using "sudo -i" to gain root privilige.
All works OK as standard user, just not root.
