Hi,

This is a problem I hit on some computers only.

I "su -" from my normal user on a terminal under xfce. Then I try to start any graphical tool, and it fails:

~# xeyes
Error: can't open display
~#

If I instead use "ssh -X root@localhost" it usually works.

This has happened to me on several computers along several years - but not all of them.

Ideas?

- -- Cheers
