Disable "this session is being run as a privlidged user"


It is very annoying messing from GNOME.
I understand the risks of running Linux GUI as root but its not a problem.
Someone please tell me how to get rid of thxt messxge.

You can't change it as it's compiled into the package.

Log in as a regular user and use gnomesu to launch a gui program if you need to run it as root. Some programs may notice the the UID and EUID are the same and refuse to run all together if you log in as root.

What tasks do you need to perform as root? Have you looked at what polkit policies you can be granted as a regular user?
