Hi, I have Python code that uses the bluetooth module.  One of the bluetooth calls I'm doing needs sudo permission (advertise_service()).

When running the script on the command line on a RPi, I simply do this: sudo python3 <name_of_script>.  That works perfect.

However, if I want to debug that script from within Wing IDE (remotely), how can I start the debug session of that script as sudo?

Best,

One way would be to use wingdbstub to initiate debug as described in http://wingware.com/doc/debug/debuggi...

Another way would be to initiate debug with wingdb as described in http://wingware.com/doc/debug/wingdb (this method doesn't require adding an import to your code).  You would add sudo before wingdb.Neither of these starts the debug process from within Wing, but you could set up an OS Command to start the process in combination with one of the above methods.

It would also be possible to set up a script that invokes sudo python and passes in all args and set that as Python Executable in Wing, but this would only work if sudo doesn't require typing in a password.
