           Summary: No program will start while runnig as root
           Product: konsole
           Version: 1.4.2
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: katins.juergen web de

Version:           1.4.2 (using KDE 3.3.2,  (3.1))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.6 (Debian 1:3.3.6-5)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.4.27-1-386

While in the Root Console I am not able to start any KDE programs. I always get an error: 

katzes:~# kate
kate: ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Can't determine DISPLAY. Aborting.

When I start Konsole as normal user it works fine, although there are too strange messages: 

katzee katzes:~$ kate
kdecore (KAction): WARNING: KActionCollection::KActionCollection( QObject *parent, const char *name, KInstance *instance )
katzee katzes:~$ QFile::open: No file name specified

katzee katzes:~$
