Starting gparted on Debian

It seems that there has been some change in the X11 permission. This change prevents starting gparted when sued to root. As debian and ubuntu have remove gksu people need to handle the permissions themselves. The following command sequence will allow you to run `gparted`.

user> xhost +si:localuser:root
user> su -
root> DISPLAY=:0 gparted
