There will be lot of dependencies for installing these packages, make sure you install all the packages using yum.
You can install the packages with the command below;
yum install xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-xauth xorg-x11-apps –y

cp /root/.Xauthority /home/sarper1/.Xauthority
chown sarper1.sarper1 /home/sarper1/.Xauthority
Now, we can test with “xclock” command;
