[Discuss] runlevel 5 service cannot connect to display

If you're trying to run a service that requires x11, don't run it as a system service.  (Because it's going to need some active x11 session anyway.)  Try something else like ... In gnome, go to System / Preferences, and configure some login script.  So when you login, this thing will automatically launch.

Or something similar.
