    Superuser terminal in fluxbox menu?


    What would I put so that it enters my password automatically? I have this so far in my .fluxbox/menu file and it asks me to enter my password:

    Code:
     [exec] (root xterm) {xterm -bg black -fg gray +tb su}
    I tried my password after su, but that did not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm not sure that it can be done, but if it can be I'd think that it would be considered a security risk unless the password is encrypted into the fluxbox menu. I do know that even when in KDE and you go to use the "super-user terminal" it asks for a password.

    Maybe someone else knows more.

    Well, if it's a security risk, I suppose I'll just not be lazy and type my password.
