You can get allow other users to run an xserver by creating 
/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config .

from man xorg.wrap :
       allowed_users = rootonly|console|anybody
                Specify  which  users  may  start  the X server through 
the wrapper. Use rootonly to only allow
                root, use console to only allow users logged into a 
physical console, and use anybody to  allow
                anybody.  The default is console.

Keep in mind that while that will allow you to run X through ssh, I have 
no idea if you'll be able to see the X screen.
