Can't start emacs from shell
and I can't edit anything as root. When I start the shell and log in as root, I try to open a config file in emacs. But then I get this error message -
"Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
emacs: Cannot connect to X server :0.0.
Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'.
Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit
connections from your machine."
When I try to run xhost I get the same error message. I'm sure there is a config file that I need to set up but I don't know which one. I had this same problem in Slackware 10.1 which is why I'm trying Kubuntu 5.04 at the moment.
Thanks for the help ahead of time,
