    Question OpenSUSE 11.4 sudo launch problem

    Hi,

    I just upgraded opensuse from version 11.3 to 11.4 using the online method changing the repositories.

    But now when i log into my gnome session as "normal user" and open a gnome terminal, then trying to launch a graphic application such as gedit or any other application that relys on X, it returns a problem such as:

    Code:
    GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
    The message can show once or repeat several times.

    I didn't have this problem before.

    Thnx.

    An assert is something you should immediately report in Bugzilla - but
    search first.

    I think you should use the gnomesu / gksu command (kdesu for KDE) instead, which integrates su with the gnome desktop environment instead of CLI su.

    If you want to use sudo in the same way I think you should try and use gksudo.

    That will take care of exporting / accessing the desktop environment.

    You can run those directly instead of opening a terminal.

    Cheers.

    Some info here: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo

    ... and about the security concerns of using it: http://blag.zash.se/2010/07/sudo-gedit-must-die/ and http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/new...itor-sudo.html
