Description Peyre Lumpkin 2004-10-09 22:45:00 UTC
Description of problem:
Whenever using gedit as default text editor from a terminal I receive
several errors. Gedit does open the file so this is not serious.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is FC2 with current kernel 2.6.8-1.521. All upgrades have been

How reproducible:
Start gedit in a terminal with a filename.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal
2. Type "gedit /etc/fstab" (for example)
3. Look in terminal window for error messages.
Actual results:
Error appears in terminal window. Gedit opens the file.

Expected results:
No error in terminal window. Gedit opens the file.

Additional info:
GdkPixbuf-Critical (error message)

Comment 1 Peyre Lumpkin 2004-10-09 22:47:54 UTC
The exact text of the error in the terminal window is:

[root@username]# gedit /etc/fstab
(gedit:7296): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols
specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
(gedit:7296): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: file gdk-pixbuf-io.c: line 769
(gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file): assertion `filename != NULL' failed

This second message is repeated 21 times in the terminal window. (the
exact message verbatim)
