gedit asks for admin password
Last modified: 2018-01-24 20:15:27 EST
Description of problem: gedit asks for admin password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 26 beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open gedit as unpriviledged user
Actual results: Popup asking for sysadmin password
Expected results: it should not be necessary to enter high priviledged user password.
Additional info: none
I have gedit-3.22.0-4.fc26.rpm and I can reproduce the bug. Gedit is asking for root password when opening user files.
Are we the only ones facing this issue?
I am not sure but I think this problem got solved by the latest updates.
I can confirm this bug on fedora 26, using latest available gedit package (gedit-3.22.1-1.fc26.x86_64.rpm).
I am using gedit.x86_64_2:3.22.1-1.fc26, I face the same issue. I need to enter root password once in a day for accessing gedit
