We tried to install InstallJammer API as non-root user.

Alternate option we found was to use 'sudo'.

Sudo does work fine on console mode but does not work in GUI mode.

Please let me know, how can I tell the Install Jammer to build an application to allow non-root user or the sudo user atleast.

Approach1: I used "Execute External Program" action and tried to run "sudo cp ./bashrc /etc/bashrc" - this works in Console mode not in Gui Mode.
Approach2: Tried to use "Execute script" action and tried "sudo file copy ./bashrc /etc/bashrc" - does not work in GUI mode.

Please kindly help me to resolve this. Cant we use sudo command in tcl script.
If i try to execute a sudo command inn tclsh it works!!
