Problems running Buildset

Trying to install an icon theme and when I try to run ./buildset I get the following:

Checking for kdialogFound /usr/bin/kdialog
Checking for unrar no.
Checking for rar no.

No unrar program found (unrar | rar).

I will ask for decompressed directory.
Checking for bzip2... found /usr/bin/bzip2
Checking for tar...  found /bin/tar
Checking for convert...  found /usr/bin/convert

Dependencies met - this script is using:
                /usr/bin/bzip2 as compressor
                /bin/tar as tar path
                /usr/bin/convert as convert path
                There is no unrar found,
unrar functions
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kdialog: cannot connect to X server :0.0
wrong dir
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Looks like something needs to be extracted first, before it can be executed and apparently thats not happeningm kdialog cannot find the correct directory (probably because its in some type of compression format). I dont know what I'm talking about though, hopefully youll get someone better to help u

Two things to mention:

1. unrar and rar are arching tools. You can get the package for your distrobkution (usually) through the Universal repository under non-free. It seems you do not have that installed

2. The refusal of the X server is probably because the build is taking place in the wrong environment (possibly should be root). I have only experienced this once, and this was my issue.
