Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 703410
gedit doesn't start from root-console
Last modified: 2012-08-06 16:05:10 EDT
Description of problem:
When I opened a terminal and changed to root-user (su). Now I want to start gedit from the console, it doesn't worked. It aborted with an error-message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 15, Gnome 3.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start terminal
2. change user to root with 'su'
3. type 'gedit'
gedit fails to start
gedit starts and opened the gedit-Window
It doesn't work for the whole Fedora 14-Lifetime until now (Fedora 15 Beta-Time).
For me it is annoying, cause I tried with that steps to edit grub.conf, fstab, ...
Likeli duplicate of #703409 (same thing w/ F14) and also #705892 (?)
This bug is until now unresolved. Also the newest Fedora 16 prerelease has this bug. In Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 works this perfectly.
It's possible for me to start 'leafpad' (xfce editor) from root console (Terminal + 'su -') in F17 Beta. Maybe you want to re-check?
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
