Hi, I can confirm this on Debian

we are currently getting rid of the root need for X, and I got the same issue.

Fortunately we have a xserver-xorg-legacy package, but a proper fix would be really appreciated.

The problem is with Factory, Tumbleweed, and Leap 42.1. For the moment, both 
13.1 and 13.2 are OK.

I disagree about the proper place for posting. The problem is with the VB X 
server needing to run as root as the community is getting rid of that necessity.
