Description of problem:
I installed gparted using the software center. I try to run gparted by clicking on it after searching for it. Gparted needs sudo permissions - which it asks for using a gui password prompt. After I enter the password,  It fails to open SILENTLY. 

Opening a terminal and typing "xhost +" and then following the exact same steps will open the software.
This is a very important issue because this is a fresh install of Fedora 23 and everyone is getting confused on what is happening.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 23, Gnome 3.18, Wayland session, fresh install

This issue is a duplicate of 1266771.
And you should use
$ xhost +local:
instead of running
$ xhost +
because the first one allows access just for local applications, the second one for everybody.
