    gufw still not working

    gufw still not working in wayland. (now a critical bug) Is wayland to be void of a firewall or do we just run ufw from terminal.

    This is a rhetorical question? Right? Or a bit sarcastically driven...

    Doesn't this work-a-round work?

    Code:
    xhost +si:localuser:root
    You can set firewall rules using iptables. See here.

    If you don't use a gui , check ufw status.

    Code:
    sudo ufw status
    Code:
    sudo ufw status
    [sudo] password for d-book:

    Thanks... I also thought the workaround was a security issue also. Problem solved for now.
