Please don't do that. Better to learn the propper way to run X as
another user by using xauth. Xauth allows you to import the magic cookie
of another user, so you can authenticate yourself to X like this:

$ su - <user>
# export DISPLAY=:0.0; xauth merge ~<user>/.Xauthority
# xfontsel &

xhost won't discriminate users, only hosts, which could be a security
problem on a multi-user system.

Fill in the propper username and display and your good to go.

Thanks that has seamed to have worked.
I then started Mozilla as root to complete the install.
Then started as mornal user but it fails "Failed to initialise Enigmail"
I have entered the path for gpg as /usr/bin/gpg

What's going wrong?
