    Hello:

    I have some programs that try to run but fail to open the X display device.
    However it works fine when I am logged in and running X as root.

    I thought the 'sux' command would fix this program. Is there any way to
    run these programs short of logging out and starting X as root?

    Thanks,
    Jim
