Gedit crashes when launching root documents as root
Last modified: 2012-08-16 11:37:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Whenever I launch gedit from bash with the directory location of a document written as root as the argument, Gedit spits this out at me:
""[root@ashley gnupg-2.0.17]# gedit /home/Brandon/gnupg_make.txt
(gedit:22356): 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)""
So I'm kind of annoyed with this because I usually use Guake and it also happens in the Terminal that comes with Fedora.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a document and save it as root
2. Log in as root
3. Type gedit with the directory of the document following the command
Umm... to work...? :P
But this will work in Eshell through Emacs. So I would guess that something in bash is having a hiccup..?
Working for me (with bash) in F17 Beta (Terminal, 'su -', $GUI-EDITOR on root-owned file). (Hadn't checked with previous Fedora versions.)
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. 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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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 '14' 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 14 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:
