Every time I invoke gedit from the root terminal I get:-
[AnOther@FSLServer ~]$ su
[root@FSLServer AnOther]# gedit
(gedit:6447): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported
followed by 33 occurrences of:-
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/
for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
gedit opens fine but it seems really odd.
My exposure to linux is not vast but this has never happened before Fedora12
It doesn't happen if I just use the terminal as an ordinary user.
It also has nothing to do with the Bad & Ugly Gstreamer plugins as this happened from the moment the system was installed from the DVD and before the plugins were loaded even after removing them and rebooting I still get the ream of GConf errors if I start Gedit after su,
