Hi All,

Im comming from ubuntu/mint and one of the things I got used too was doing something like "sudo nautilus" or "sudo gedit" and similar things. In Suse 11.3 I always get errors like the following

(gedit:6115): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
kate: cannot connect to X server
Could not parse arguments: Cannot open display:

or similar variations of these.

What can I so to prevent this from happening? even if I do "su" and try from there it doesnt always work.

I like Suse as it feels more professional then ubuntu, but I am trying to make it as user friendly.
