Open GUI programs as a fast-switched-out user
Authored by: digitalone on Apr 07, '04 03:49:09PM

You guys are missing a much better use of this program. Set the terminal to open when the user logs in, and have the terminal run the "screen" command when it starts. Hide the terminal from the user in thier preferences. Then have fun opening programs on your unwitting wife or loved one and laugh your a55 off for a good 5 minutes.

j/k

Open GUI programs as a fast-switched-out user

The snag to that plan is that you need to have their password.
Sadly, I thought about that one too - if only this had come a few days ago in time for April Fools day...

Well, that's not entirely true. If you have access to their account/machine when they're not looking, you can set up SSH public key authentication so that you can login to their account without a password. Check the manpages for the details.
