I tried editing the /etc/sudoers following your advice. There were
several different paths but none seem to allow users to access to
ethereal, option 2 is not working for me either. This is what I typed
below, I plan on adding a password once I get it running without one.
username ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/share/doc/packages/ethereal
username ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/X11R6/bin/ethereal
username ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/X11R6/lib/ethereal
username ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/X11R6/share/ethereal
is this right ?
