mplayer and xine problem with X


I installed both mplayer-gui and xine [mplayer-gui the hard way and xine with apt-get]... the problem is they do not open, except under root. They both give an error about X. mplayer says it cannot open X11 and xine says something about Xlib. However, like i said, if i su root they open without a problem. Any ideas?
