Full Version: Running XBMC in its own login
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
A lot of addons store passwords in plain text in their respective settings.xml files. This means these passwords are available to any process running in my userspace, like my browser.

I'd like if possible to install and run XBMC from its own login, but still be able to interact with it from my own login.

Is this possible, if so any ppointers?
Well I did some experimenting and it kinda works really well.

xhost +local:
sudo -u xbmcuser xbmc
xhost -local:
it's 90% of the way there... BUT, and it's quite a BIG but, there is no sound.

It seems there is no sound available to sudo sessions, anyone have any ideas how to fix that?
