OK,


Let me start off by saying sorry, I have a million things going on here and I should have been more specific in the beginning. With that said, what I am trying to do is

logged in as a user, startx

then open a shell, su to root run an xapplication like nmapfe.

here is what I get when I try this:

Xlib: connection to ";0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 Key

GtkWarning **: cannot open display: :0.0
