    Everything is set to Breeze. So I'm scratching my head.
    It's one of the programs I must have too.

    Hi
    So did you try creating a test user, login and run? FWIW it runs fine on Gnome....

    "gparted" seems to be working fine here under Plasma (on Tumbleweed).

    No. I don't have Gnome installed and with BRFS / I don't think I have room.
    Going to try on one of the other machines running Plasma.

    I have not changed it from the opensuse default. I think that's breeze, or based on breeze.

    Okay, the default is the opensuse theme. So I switched it to Breeze, logged out, logged in again. And "gparted" still starts up without a problem. (And, after testing that, I switched back to the opensuse theme).

    That good to know.
    Breeze Dark is what openSUSE Plasma sports at install if I recall correctly.

    I am going to check what files systems I have installed too.
    I have some stuff that might be from packman.
    I had exfat but that was recently replaced with an official Tumbleweed package.
    Still haven't had time to check it on a different machine.

    You are not alone... I've just tried to use gparted and see exactly the same behaviour fails to start, and from the command line:

    "(gpartedbin:9789): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: "

    I last used gparted around 6 months ago, there's been a lot of snapshots since then so I've no idea when this "problem" was first introduced. (Currently on 20171212).

    Changing the gtk theme per @GooeyGirls's post https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...97#post2847597 makes no difference. Had been using "Default", tried Breeze and Adwata, with a reboot on each occasion for good measure.

    Googling for the "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: " returns several hits, all of which seem to indicate this is caused by the Xserver not running and/or running under Wayland.

    I'm not using Wayland and X is running...

    Affects both existing users _and_ a new test user, so it looks like a system level rather than user problem.


    @FlameBait

    Any idea which snapshot may have introduced this? Perhaps a clue there... Or have you made any progress with it?
