I assume you mean as a normal user you CANNOT go to X windows..
this usually is because of the Xwrapper config..
check your /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config , the default should have:
if you don't have this file, create it. simple way:
echo "allowed_users=console" >/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
(as the root user)
startx should work after that, assuming that was the problem, if
it doesn't include the output from startx to help debug the
Question about (as the root user)---do you mean become root
BEFORE executing echo "allowed_users=console" >/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
or BEFORE executing startx?
