Gedit tries to update the list of recently opened files and the file or any leading directories up to it do not exist. Instead of "fixing" this error I suggest you change your development habit and set up your personal repository using RCS, CVS, SVN, Mercurial, GIT or whatever else versioning system you fancy. Store changes there and only checkout and 'sudo cp' files to /var/www when you're certain it works. This way you don't have to run applications as root unnecessarily and can revert if something doesn't work.

Exclamation Create directory using gedit command

Yes,its not necessary that we do every thing using root but when we going to create a directory without root using gedit then its create a problem related to saving of file. Then what should i do???

The workaround of:

$ sudo mkdir -p /root/.local/share

does work. However, a user shouldn't need to do that to run '$ gksudo gedit'.
Beyond this workaround, I haven't been able to find another answer to this.

Try using Sudo? To create directories with ownership set see for example 'install' as in 'sudo install -m 0755 -o root -g apache -d /var/www/directoryname'. 'man install' for explanation of options.

The error isn't about Gedit IMHO but people using the wrong tool to get the job done.
