Help! I am trying to edit a postinfo.xsl in my root file dir, and with the command:
frank@linux-avnb:~> sudo gedit
(gedit:14150): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
I get the following. what am i doing wrong?
Thanks in advance, Frank
Hit ALT+F2 to raise the run command, and enter
personally i dislike “sudo” and its variants
so if you DO HAVE a /root folder I would use " su -"
---- your root password when asked--
i also DO use a different password for root and for a normal user
suse defaults to the same password for both , i reset it on my system
IMO ‘gnomesu gedit’ is better than ‘su -’ +password + ‘gedit’
