NAME

       ettercap-pkexec - graphical pkexec-based launcher for ettercap

       This  launcher  depends  on  policykit-1  and  the  menu  packages, and
       basically wraps the ettercap binary command
       with    a    pkexec    action     script     usually     defined     on
       /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.pkexec.ettercap.policy,
       allowing  users  to  directly  call  ettercap  from the desktop or menu
       launcher with root privileges.
       The commands available are exactly the same as the ettercap man page.

       Please refer to man ettercap for the list of available parameters.
       (don't forget to  change  "ettercap"  to  "ettercap-pkexec"  as  caller
       program).

       example:

       ettercap-pkexec  -G  will  start  ettercap with root privileges and the
       GTK2 interface.

BUGS

       Our software never has bugs.
       It just develops random features.   ;)

       KNOWN-BUGS

       - ettercap doesn't handle fragmented packets... only the first  segment
       will  be  displayed  by  the  sniffer.  However  all  the fragments are
       correctly forwarded.

       +   please    send    bug-report,    patches    or    suggestions    to

PHILOLOGICAL HISTORY

       "Even if blessed  with  a  feeble  intelligence,  they  are  cruel  and
       smart..."   this  is  the description of Ettercap, a monster of the RPG
       Advanced Dungeons & Dragon.

       The name "ettercap"  was  chosen  because  it  has  an  assonance  with
       "ethercap" which means "ethernet capture" (what ettercap actually does)
       and also because such monsters have a powerful poison... and you  know,
       arp poisoning... ;)

The Lord Of The (Token)Ring

       (the fellowship of the packet)

       "One Ring to link them all, One Ring to ping them,
        one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness sniff them."

Last words

       "Programming  today  is  a  race between software engineers striving to
       build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the  Universe  trying
       to  produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."
