Re: gedit: running gedit as root I have no options on GNOME's top menu

This is indeed the case. Apps run as other users cannot access your session bus, and that is very intentional.

Do not run apps like gedit as root. It is very dangerous.

Hey folks,

I am not sure if this is the right mailling list, but here it goes:

if I run gedit as root I dont get those menu options like new window, preferences, help, about and quit.
I only have quit option. I know it's unsafe running gedit as root.

I got the following lines in terminal:

(gedit:3754): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: The connection is closed
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)

using: gedit-3.10.1

any clue ?
