#10642 assigned bug

Can't start BApplications with other user

Reported by: pulkomandy Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Servers/app_server Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

  • Create an additional user for ssh access
  • Ssh to your haiku computer, and try to run a BApplication
  • The application silently stops.

Syslog has this message:

DAEMON 'app_server': Cannot initialize Desktop object: General system error
KERN: Could not initialize graphics output. Exiting.

This happens with vim, unzip, and DumpRenderTree. It's either because of using ssh, or because the new user doesn't have the right permissions. At least a warning to standard output, instead of the syuslog, would be nice. A fix to make this working would be even better.

Confirmed the problem is being logged in as another user, so probably the permissions aren't right somewhere? Logging in with "user" through ssh gets this to work.
