Read Slackware fan's comment (#2), only one instance of X.

Although this doesn't happen when
gksudo somegtkapp
kdesudo somegtkapp
I start GNOME or fluxbox/openbox/lxsession etc.
Use it that way if you must.

I do not understand why everybody wants to use GUI apps as root. What is your reason? If you must edit a file, the preferred way is to do it within an Xterm, using nano/ed/vi whatever.

You freaking debian/ubuntu noobs, please stop posting in a NINE year old SLACKWARE forum thread. Resurrection of the dead does not work, it is a stinking corpse and your ignorant remarks do not do it any good. Just READ the advice which is given to you.
