First I run some trivial command with sudo, so that sudo will ask for
(and then remember) my password:
Next I run dxaccounts:
sudo dxaccounts -display myworkstation:0.0 &
and voila! Up it comes on my workstation.
If I omit the first step, ie, if sudo wants my password
for the dxaccounts command, it bombs out.
The sudo man page will tell you how to run sudo with some option
so that it will simply ask for a password and nothing more. I think
it's 'sudo -v' and I have done something like this in the past:
echo "Please enter your normal password here"
# For remote display, extend this script by asking for display host and
# sudo dxaccounts -display hostname:0.0
Thanks also to George Meharry II for his prompt response.

I am configuring sudo on a Digital Unix system and want my help desk to
be able to use the dxaccounts GUI via sudo - but I can't get it working!
what is the trick with X11 windows?
thanks in advance,
