X Server Client Refusal?
Where in the docs is the information regarding X client setup?
When running as root or su applications are refused permission to run. The
following error message appears:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
NEdit: Can't open display
The applications run fine when logged in as a regular user, however,
critical files which need to be modified cannot be since they are opened as
readonly files. Of course I can fall back to the console and modify files
to my hearts content but this seems rather inane to me.
There's a ton of stuff in X and knowing where to look in the docs is
probably the answer but this takes a while to get used to.
Any good overview of the X process in the docs?
