 The error message is pretty long, but let's tackle the first line first.
 > Application initialization failed: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable
 X applications need to be told which display to send their output to.
 This can be a command line argument, but is typicall an environment
 variable named DISPLAY.  Probably when you su to a user, DISPLAY is
 unset.  Try the following:
 export DISPLAY
 If this works, please let me know and I will close this PR.  KDE ought
 to work for non-root users, but that is a separate issue.
