This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2018-01-03 08:17:19 UTC
I think this is mostly because of you are using Wayland where you can run applications only with the user that you logged in.

Comment 3 Pooja Yadav 2018-02-26 08:41:47 UTC
Reproducible on F27.

Comment 4 Parag Nemade 2018-04-08 04:04:47 UTC
Just check this bug 1274451 and you will get more information. Also, I believe that is the main bug where all discussion happened related to running applications as non-current user under Wayland.

Based on the resolution applied on that bug, I am likely to close this as WONTFIX.
