Fail to start X as user


Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04 lamp server amd64
Fluxbox


$ ls -l /home | grep satimis
Code:
drwxrwxr-x 11 satimis satimis 4096 2007-08-17 15:34 satimis
$ startx
Code:
Xauth timeout in locking authority file //.serverauth.3113
Xauth timeout in locking authority file //.Xauthority
Xauth timeout in locking authority file //.Xauthority
Xauth timeout in locking authority file //.Xauthority
Xauth timeout in locking authority file //.Xauthority
Finally X started (Fluxbox)

On Fluxbox
only 3 items found on menu, xterm, Restart, Exit

Started Xterm

$ firefox
Can't start

$ sudo firefox
Firefox started

Why I can't find ".serverauth.xxx" before start X?


Remark:
$ sudo startx
works w/o problem with full menu displayed on Fluxbox desktop


B.R.
satimis
