Problems opening Gedit under ROOT
Posted on 2005-05-16
When I had Mandrake I managed to edit my config files in GEDIT by entering 'su' in the shell console and it would popup. But in Suse I have a hard time doing that. I can only open it under my username. But when I type 'su' and then Gedit, it gives me Command not Found. Becasue I want to edit the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file but I can't as USER. Then I tried going into the Shell Konsole as 'SU' to become ROOT and typed GEDIT and said Command not Found.... In Mandrake I never had this issue. Even with Kate, same problem. But what bothers me the most, is on the Kstart-Menu, it has it named as Text Editor instead of GEDIT. It should be named as GEDIT in Kstart-Menu. But I have no problems opening it up under Non-Root...I installed Gedit a while ago after I installed SUSE. I got it from the Package List in YAST.
What can be the issue here?
