I am trying to run backintime-qt4-root and I get nothing. It runs fine as a user. I tried from the cli and get this error:

No protocol specified app.py: cannot connect to X server :0

I tried a few methods already but no result. Any ideas?

Fixed. The problem was that root did not have access to xserver. I edited this file:

/usr/bin/backintime-qt4_polkit

and added: xhost +local:

All working fine now.
