richtbuser is granted the permission to run certain programs with elevated privileges through sudo.

Using wireshark

Wireshark is a useful tool for debugging the Chimaera2 readout. It has to be run with enhanced privileges. The richtbuser@lbrichtb account is allowed to run wireshark using the command

sudo wireshark

An additional step is needed for this to work when using it remotely, e.g.

ssh -Y richtbuser@lbrichtb
echo $DISPLAY  # to find the display name.
xauth list     # to locate the line corresponding to the display (look for the display number after host/unix:).
sudo xauth add <line-copied-from-xauth-list-output>

Now you can run wireshark with sudo as before.
