It's saying your X11 client isn't able to use the X protocol to talk to your 
X11 server because the necessary Xauthority data doesn't exist, i.e. you 
started a shell with something that doesn't manage the Xauthority magic 
cookies, like 'su'.  You could use something like ssh, otherwise you will 
have to resort to using something like 'xhost +' which is a security risk.
