    Default Gedit error

    Every time I run gedit from the Gnome terminal, I get a long string of repeated error messages like 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 GConf configuration system 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.)

    Gedit then opens and proceeds to work fine but it's annoying. Any ideas?

    So do I in fedora 10 or my SUSE 11.1 Gnome VM.
    Seems to be the norm.
    Don't let it bother you. There are far more important things to be concerned about.

    I'm not losing any sleep over it, though it is annoying when it wipes out the command history. Just wondered if using an alternative terminal and/or text editor would make any difference?

    Nano's perfectly usable. Vi not so much.

    Now Vi *would* give me sleepless nights :-). Does using nano get rid of the bove error messages? Would be worth considering then.

    Bah.... nano is okay, but vi is superior. :-)

    Every GUI app I ever run seems to dump garbage to my shell if I run it
    from there. Currently I use 'konsole' (despite running in Gnome
    primarily) and have my histories set to unlimited, which is really handy
    at times. So it takes some space... I've never had a problem with that
    being used temporarily.

    Good luck.

    Hi
    Don't see anything here. One of the plugins trying to access a remote
    file? Run gconf-editor and search on gedit. Check the entries here.

    I built medit awhile back, search here
    Get It

    Yeah, or you could just rip the keyboard out and tap machine code directly into the CPU's pins using an electrician's screwdriver.



    Try nano.

    bah..... apparently you haven't learned vi. Take a few minutes... you
    won't regret it if you give it a chance:

    Run:
    vimtutor

    Good luck.
