Edit "/usr/bin/pulseaudio-equalizer" and remove the section that does a check for root (searching for the term "root" should do). If you need further assistance as a result of the script not working from root, you'll need to look elsewhere, sorry.
Just to let you know pulseaudio-eq not found in maverick repos at this time. I installed from lucid repo---no gui. I assume you must be working on this-program works great in lucid.Thank you for your efforts with this.
