What is "Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server "


Hi All

I am relatively new to Linux so forgive me if this is a no-brainer.

I am running SuSE 9. I downloaded kopete-0.8beta2. I can run "./configure --prefix-/usr/local" fine, and then "make", and "make install" (as root) successfully.

However when I run /usr/local/bin/kopete, this is what I get:

201-11:/usr/local/bin # ./kopete
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kded: cannot connect to X server :0.0
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-15070' to 'kded'
ERROR: Communication problem with kded, it probably crashed.
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kdeinit: Can't connect to the X Server.
kdeinit: Might not terminate at end of session.
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kopete: cannot connect to X server :0.0
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Registering failed!
ERROR: Communication problem with kopete, it probably crashed.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

you're probably still root. the X server will deny access to anyone other than the person who started the server, i.e. your normal user. if you really wish to have that access, run "xhost +localhost" which will allow any local user to start X applications. this shouldbe a last restort, and you should just plain be you when possible.
