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 &
