Hi All,

I figured it out. While looking up iformation requested by
the Metasploit form, on a lark, I opened an xterm and elevated
to root. Then I cd'ed into /usr/local/bin. And I ran msfconsole
directly. Guess who started working!

I had been rinning:
/usr/bin/gksu -u root "/usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
from my Xfce Pane2lanucher. So, I tried
/usr/bin/gksu -u root "cd /usr/local/bin; /usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
No joy. So it is the gksu command that is at fault.

So, I switched my Xfce Panel 2 launcher to:
su root -c "cd /usr/local/bin; /usr/local/bin/msfconsole"
With run in terminal checked on, and JOY!

Thank you so much for all the help and moral support.

-T
