I'm trying to use gedit as root to edit some config files, but everytime I try to open it, I get this mess. Can anyone explain to me what I'm doing wrong and why? I had a similar issue with debian, and someone solved it by telling my to run gksu nautilus. I tried to run gksu gedit, but apparently that doesn't work on Fedora. I really like Fedora, and I want to stick with it, but if I can't edit these files, I'm going to have issues.
Thank you for the help.
