Can't display as root

I'm getting the following when I try to use the X display as root:

linux:/home/trey # red-carpet
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error importing gtk: could not open display

In this case, trying to start Red Carpet. I have done the following:

trey@linux:~> xhost +localhost

-AND_

linux:/home/trey # export DISPLAY=:0.0

but I'm still getting the same error. Is there something else I should be
doing?

Thanks.
