Description Oliver Haessler 2017-07-24 06:58:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting gnome-system-log from a Gnome 3 User session produces error in log file but does not ask for the root password.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start RHEL 7.4 with a user logged in to Gnome 3 session
2. press "Windows" key and type "log"
3. Star the "System Log" tool

Actual results:
no root password request and error in journalctl:

Jul 24 12:50:57 xxxx gnome-system-log.desktop[15359]: Refusing to render service to dead parents.
Jul 24 12:51:01 xxxx tracker-extract[4830]: unable to create file '/run/user/14685/dconf/user': Permission denied.  dconf will not work properly.

Expected results:

Additional Info:
Starting journalctl from the terminal as user shows the following warning:

Hint: You are currently not seeing messages from other users and the system.
      Users in groups 'adm', 'systemd-journal', 'wheel' can see all messages.
      Pass -q to turn off this notice.

but shows my log entries for my user. Would be cool if Gnome System log would do the same, so users can look into issues and error messages more easy.
