If you run the StarOffice install su'd to root you won't necessarily
be able to open windows on your desktop. X defaults to locking out all
other users, even root. Try:
before you su, which will permit any user locally on your machine to
open up windows on your desktop. Or indeed, because of the way ssh
poses as an X server if you use it to tunnel remote X sessions, it
will allow any user that you su to or login as on a remote machine
reached by ssh to open windows on your desktop.
If that level of control is too imprecise for you, you can use:
% xauth extract /tmp/foo :0.0
# xauth merge /tmp/foo
which copies your .Xsession credentials for your session on the local
display to /root/.Xsession, thus allowing root access to your desktop.
