Root permission for network

Root permission for network
Trying out the new version, it's pretty cool!

I can't get it to track the network bandwidth without starting WP with sudo. Using Ubuntu 12.04, Wp 2.0b6 - 64bit

Couldn't open device "eth1" : eth1: You don't have permission to capture on that device (socket: Operation not permitted)
WhatPulse has started

Is there something I need to change to make it work without root permissions?

They disappeared, restarted and they didn't come back. WP is still working and capturing keys though...

This came up, not sure if it's related:
QPropertyAnimation: you're trying to animate a non-existing property opacity of your QObject
QPixmap: It is not safe to use pixmaps outside the GUI thread

Please read the README.txt in the download. It points to a KB item/url that explains you need to set certain permissions to be able to run it as a normal user.
