    -sorry, I guess I should have explained better.

    -When I launch d1x (descent) I get the following:

    You must be the owner of the current console to use svgalib.
    Not running in a graphics capable console,
    and unable to find one.
    svgalib: cannot get keyboard mode.

    Error: SVGAlib Keyboard Init Failed

    Error: SVGAlib Keyboard Init Failed

    -I can only play it as su

    -I mean an easy fix would be just to create a shortcut to it as su, but I think I saw a way (once) to make the SDL/SVGA work for all users. . .
