GTK Ubuntu Precise packaging success

Thanks for the tip. I originally added the line to the file
/etc/skel/.bashrc which is what the .bashrc file in the /home/ubuntu
directory is created from on the live CD. So the line is present in
~/.bashrc as soon as .bashrc is present in the /home/ubuntu folder on the
live CD.

I just tried adding it to
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/99disable-overlay-scrollbarsinstead, which should
apply the setting system-wide (as described here:
When I echo the value in a terminal it correctly says 0. Now, however, when
I try to run an application, I get the following error (no matter which app
I run):

   (gnome-calculator:4443): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0
   [1]+  Exit 1                  gnome-calculator

Any ideas?
