X DISPLAY Connection Problems -current
The historical sequence for running selected processes as root on user kde session do not work with updates of 3/12. In terminal window
No gui processes will connect to the display. I typically use this process to transfer files from a ntfs formatted usb drive such as the updates to SLACKWARE for a system that doesn't have network access. As of now I have to start another vt and log in as root to access the drive. If I set that session as display :1.0 I can do
emacs . -d :1.0
from the original and get it displayed.
