    Kaffeine runs only as root

    Hi All,
    SuSe 9.2 Pro on a HP pavilion zd7140us
    I used KLineakConfig to program the volume up, mute, and volume down special keys on my laptop. Program was a success, keys work fine.

    Now, my Kaffeine crashes - I must be root to run Kaffeine and it works fine - but only as root,
    Obviously, there is a permissions issue with a file or directory somewhere. How to I efficiently go about learning which fine or directory is requireing root privledges?
    Many Thanks in Advance,
    J Wilwert

    Try starting Kaffeine in Konsole and post the error message.
