confirming that Gufw must be run as root...

Asked by tjk on 2013-04-06

I tried using Gufw today. I read several websites about this app, but none of them state explicitly that I have to run Gufw as root. (EG https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gufw ) But I found that I could not make any changes if I did not start it as root. Seems to make sense that I need to start it this way, but it confuses me that the documentation that I've read does not mention it...

Hi! Gufw will only run as root ;)

Can you help with this problem?
