View Full Version : Gtk Message

17th August 2011, 10:35 AM
When opening gedit as a user I get the following message

Gkt-message: Failed to load module "'pk-gtk-module"

If I try to open gedit as root I get the same message but with other messages. These are shown in the attached file. gtk.txt

This is on an upgraded machine using the preupgrade method. The same has happened on two machines upgraded from F14 to F15 the same way. 64 bit systems.

any ideas on how to clean this up so the messages do no appear?

Well since root dont have a GUI account, these directories dont exist, thus that error message.
Dont worry, you may edit and save the file anyway, as the error just says it wont be listed as 'last used'.

Is the file saved with 'normal' user?
Or doesnt it open the file at all?

Yes Gedit opens ok both as root and user. As "user" you an edit save and open files ok.

make a root folder

use the not recomended root login hack
for one and only one login
get the root account created and set up
and use a very DIFFERENT theme than the normal users
then undo ( remove the root login hack ) it
now when you launch gedit as root

su -
you will also have a visible que that you are running as root.

i created the file /root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel, and the error disappeared
