Re: emacs to run as root from su, in its own X window?

The following message is a courtesy copy of an article
that has been posted to gnu.emacs.bug as well. Great.

Sorry for the irrelevant groups and even mangled address, but I just
wanted to say I found the solution to folks on the places where I
posted my original question.  Solution =
  You guys gotta be kidding about the books and classes.  I found all I
  needed was a simple export XAUTHORITY=$HOME/.Xauthority at the top of
  the user's .xsession file and he could then su to root and run all the
  X apps he wanted... probably covers 99% of the cases...  [Note that if
  one uses ~ instead of $HOME, one can't even login (no X app will
  work) :-) ]
