I've used Ubuntu for some time now, and I just recently set up a dual boot system on my laptop with fedora as well. However, If I try to run gedit as root to edit my /etc/fstab file I get this:
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.)
.. and gedit launches but with normal user permissions. How do I fix this?
In ubuntu, I simply typed gksu gedit and it asked for my password and it worked. Fedora doesn't have gksu installed.
Any help would be great!
