Can't install bitmessage

Hello! I doing everything by instruction from:
https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Compiling_instructions

But after this line:
~/PyBitmessage/src/bitmessagemain.py

It shows:

Loading existing config files from /root/.config/PyBitmessage/
2014-09-21 11:52:12,450 - DEBUG - Database file already exists.
Could not read the Namecoin config file probably because you don’t have Namecoin installed. That’s ok; we don’t really need it. Detailed error message: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/root/.namecoin/namecoin.conf’

bitmessagemain.py: cannot connect to X server :0

What is the reason of the problem can be?

Don’t start gui applications as root. If you must, use gksudo or in Whonix (KDE), use kdesudo. I haven’t used bitmessage, but I guess there is no reason to start it as root. So start it as user and that error should go away.

Thahks! I tried:
kdesudo ~/PyBitmessage/src/bitmessagemain.py

Now it shows:
No protocol specified
kdesudo: cannot connect to X server :0

You are still logged in as root?

When you type

I guess it shows “root”. But it must show for example “user”.

And as I said, you most likely don’t need gksu / kdesudo. Not just you most likely you don’t need it, you most likely shouldn’t use it for this purpose.
