I use krusader for file management stuff. the problem is that apache's
DocumentRoot should be under
chown www-data:www-data /path/to/www. so using krusader (which is run under my account) I've not write access to
/path/to/www while I really need. I don't know how other developers can continue doing things with such a restriction!
I wondered if I could run krusader as
www-data then I will be able to easily play with files. but using
su - www-data asked me for
So, how can I run an application (like krusader) as another user (like www-data) in Gnome?
or is there any other solution for my case? (tough I'm really curious to know the answer!)
keep in mind that I know I can run it as root! but this will cause some permission problems when using
mkdir, you know.
gksudo did not help:
$ gksudo -u -www-data krusader No protocol specified krusader: cannot connect to X server :0.0
according the best answer, i did
chmod u+w /path/to/www and my problem solved. but i still has not been succeeded in opening krusader as another user!
