The warning about security is worth paying attention to. You should
never use 'xhost +'. You are allowing any host anywhere to connect to
your local server if you do that. A client connected to your server
can see everything any other client does on that server. It can see
every keystroke you type. This includes passwords you type, etc. Just
say "no" to xhost +. Use it only for quick tests, then quickly disable
it with xhost -.

Sorry I couldn't offer any quick fix - I'm certainly *not* a
