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

xhost +
su -
export DISPLAY=:0.0
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.

I guess the is your localhost. Then you should use xhost +local:, otherwise run X server without -nolisten tcp flag (search in kdmrc for kdm x login manager).
