Run-as-spot script fixed

September 21, 2017 — BarryK

Puppy Forum member belham2 discovered a broken symlink when (try) to run SeaMonkey as user "spot":

I wondered whether this is fixed in woof-CE, and yes it is, as they don't even have that symlink-creation line anymore:

https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/tree/testing/woof-code/support

It has been awhile since I looked at that run-as-spot code, had to think how it works. In woof-CE, support/setup-spot gets copied by 3builddistro to /usr/sbin when Puppy is being built. Ditto for woofQ.

I have fixed that symlink in woofQ.
