I have two users.
admin can see everything.
pi is restricted.
I have a tkinter python application.
pi must be able to run the program, but it cannot read any of the files directly. There is a
data.json file that the application needs, but I don't want the user cheating by peaking at the file directly.
I added the following line to visudo:
pi ALL=(admin) NOPASSWD: /home/admin/myapp/main.py If I understand correctly, this will allow
pi to switch to
admin just when trying to run the python app.
Then I made a script
runapp.sh with the line: `gksudo -u admin python3 /home/admin/myapp/main.py
I run the script as
pi and nothing happens. Even when I run it from the terminal, there are no errors, but the app does not appear. Before, I tried using just sudo instead of gksudo and got the error
_tkinter.TclError: couldn't connect to display ":0", so I know it is at least trying to execute the python code.
What do I need to change to get this working?
