Description Pablo Rodríguez 2010-11-27 08:24:26 EST
Invoking gedit from the command-line gives me the following message:

(gedit:10845): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted (core dumped)

Do you want me to report this upstream?

Thanks for your help,

I've tried gedit and get the same result as the op. With emacs same result as Aravind vijayan. su -c 'gvim' works on my box.

You need to include an extra "-" in your command.
