4.2. How do I run GUI (X11) programs as root?
Gentoo has a security limit on XFree that only allows the same user (from the same machine) use the X server. To run X11 programs as root you must first use the command xhost (xhost localhost) to give other users on the same box permission to use the X server.

$ xhost localhost
$ su -
# kcontrol &
#
