Description yngguru 1999-03-26 19:37:38 EST
The following error was encountered when clicking on
the "try" button in the Gnome Control Panel Screen Saver
Settings (the action obviously did not work):

AUDIT: Mon Mar 22 21:56:48 1999: 1322 Xwrapper: client 14
from local host
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
xscreensaver: Can't open display: :0
xscreensaver: initial effective uid/gid was root/root (0/0)
xscreensaver: running as nobody/nobody (99/99)

xscreensaver: Errors at startup are usually authorization
problems. Did you read the manual?  Specifically, the parts
that talk about XAUTH, XDM, and root logins?

Comment 1 yngguru 1999-03-26 19:40:59 EST
The above was displayed when switching back to the console virtual
terminal that was running X.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 1999-07-28 20:11:59 EDT
It sounds like you are running the control center in an unusual manner
- can you give instructions on how to reproduce this problem?
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 1999-09-13 15:49:59 EDT
It "works for me", and no reply was received from the bug reporter
within a Very Long Time, so I'm closing this.
