Yes, but it's just a little test program, there's nothing big about using it.
Just run it and see if it displays whirling gears.  If it did, your 3d
is set up properly.

Good (except for that part about root :-)

No.  That points to you logging in as root and then doing "su user",
which isn't going to work because plain users should not be able
to display things on root's X window server.
Better to log in as a normal user, and then for those moments when
you need root, su or sudo to root.
