I changed that, but I'm getting the same error. The error is:

/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and
/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: running /usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w
/var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" 01 ":0"

Xlib: connection ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

(gnome-session:1617): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Any ideas? I don't know nearly as much about the X system as I probably
should (but I'm learning).
