    7878=== non-suid binary ===
    7979If you distribution ships the newer version but only installs a suid Xorg binary, Xpra should have installed the [https://www.xpra.org/trac/browser/xpra/trunk/src/scripts/xpra_Xdummy xpra_Xdummy] wrapper script and configured xpra.conf to use it instead of the regular Xorg binary.
    80 This script takes care of copying the Xorg binary to a non-suid executable before running it.
    81 Note: in some cases, you may need to make the Xorg executable world-readable so that the wrapper can make the non-suid copy when needed:
    82 {{{
    83 sudo chmod +r /usr/bin/Xorg
     80
     81Newer versions of this script execute {{{Xorg}}} via {{{ld-linux.so}}}, which takes care of stripping the suid bit.

     83Older version of this script were copying the Xorg binary to a non-suid executable before running it.
     84(Note: in some cases, you may need to make the Xorg executable world-readable so that the wrapper can make the non-suid copy when needed: {{{sudo chmod +r /usr/bin/Xorg}}})
