I have recently moved to Debian Sarge from "another" distro and I like it a
lot, besides a few problems that I'm trying to fix on the way.
One of these is one related to GTK apps: every time I try to run one from the
console as root I receive the same error. For istance, if I try to run
Synaptics this happens:
(synaptic:17058): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
Instead of using su use "ssh root@localhost" and allow X11Forwarding.
That will allow you to run X-programs in your terminal as root.
