Obviously Phillip you are shooting off your foul mouth without knowing a
dammed thing you are talking about. It is obvious from your comments you
know nothing about wayland or wayland security and that you are just
spewing shit on the bug report.

Wayland , upstream, does not and will not support running graphical
applications, as root, from the terminal using sudo , period, end of story.
There are other mechanisms to grant graphical applications root access, but
again the application itself is not going to run as root.

Perhaps you should read the documentation and security discussions before
you put your foot so far into your mouth it comes out your ass and back in
again.

handle/

And if you take your fat head out of your ass and look upstream you will
see every bug files against wayland regarding the problem of running
graphical applications with sudo has been closed as either not a bug or
wont fix.

"Wayland dont support sudo users!"

Status <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html#bug_status>:
RESOLVED
NOTOURBUG


The is not all in any way claiming you can not run graphical apps as root,
you just need to use another method.

And your comment has nothing to do with running graphical apps in X .
