X server blah blah blah

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

./winetools: Can't open display :0.0

That error message pops up alot for really any program (this one just happened to be winetools)

I'm sure it's something dumb, anybody know a way to fix it? I'm on RH9.

It sounds like you are logged in as a normal user into KDE and then started a shell and changed user to another user.

What I suggest you try if you want to use a user such as root.

1- Login to KDE as your self.
2- Start a command shell
3- Type in # xhost +
4- su – root
5- export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
6- winetools

Good luck

P.S. Have a looks at:
--> I wrote a article in how I got Wine configured with winetools.
The Best Games are for Download @ GCCLINUX
