gedit-2.30.4-1.fc14.i686 crashes when used as root
Last modified: 2011-02-16 15:56:20 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 am also suffering with this and i feel the same with Emacs too.
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.
the same problem exist with gnote from command line
You need to include an extra "-" in your command.
