    Gnome and Gedit

    Running FC3 x86 (and gnome)
    ONLY as root, every other user is fine
    When, in console, I use the gedit command to open any file (new or existing), it produces this error:
    [/]# gedit /etc/rc.local

    (gedit:5846): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
    Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
    looking for type: got text/plain

    [/]# gedit /etc/fstab

    (gedit:5853): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
    Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
    looking for type: got text/plain

    gedit still opens, but the message is annoying. Anybody got a clue?

    Wait, so everything works? You can edit files and such? If that's the case then you don't have a problem.

    If you don't want to see the message and you don't want to have a terminal open, just run Gedit from the menu or from an icon. Then do File --> Open <file> and you're done.
