If I try to run a program with GUI (e.g. Nautilus) as root, I'm just getting the following output:

gksu nautilus
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated.

Did you modified your ~/.fonts.conf ? –  NorTicUs Oct 19 '12 at 13:07
    
it's a bug: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/backintime/+bug/1068437 or at least a warning that is worded strangly: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fontconfig/+bug/1068549 –  Rinzwind Oct 19 '12 at 13:11
    
I didn't modify it, but I just restored my home-directory from 12.04. The font bug is solved now for me but still, I get the second error displayed. –  Marvin Janosch Oct 19 '12 at 13:20

From the bug report:

This is just a warning to get people to migrate to XDG configuration layout, it is no bug in backintime.

To get rid of the warning move ~/.fonts.conf to ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf or if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fontconfig is set to that directory.

Thanks the first warning was solved by this. But I still get: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyCould not parse arguments: Anzeige kann nicht geöffnet werden: –  Marvin Janosch Oct 19 '12 at 13:17
