As reported by Rumen Bogdanovski <>. photview is a link to photclient rumen@bc2s:~$ su Password: root@bc2s:/home/rumen# rm /tmp/par-rumen/ -r root@bc2s:/home/rumen# photclient **** window appears **** root@bc2s:/home/rumen# exit exit rumen@bc2s:~$ photview Permission denied at ../blib/lib/ line 845. rumen@bc2s:~$ ls -l /tmp/ drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2006-10-24 23:08 par-rumen/ rumen@bc2s:~$ The point is that rumen->"su"->root creates /tmp/par-rumen with owner root. In this case "rumen" can not execute any other PARs I think it should create /tmp/par-root as rumen->"su -"->root does.
