gedit fails!
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hello Folks,
This seems very strange that such an elemental and essential bit of kit is failing to work, but here's the output of my command line attempts to run gedit as of today:

:~$ gedit
Failed to register: Timeout was reached
:~$ sudo apt reinstall gedit

Needless to say, nothing happens when attempting to lunching graphically.

Interestingly, gedit seems to run find with sudo:

:~$ sudo gedit

(No options for verbosity...)

Weird, I rebooted and now it works...

:~$ gedit

So, I guess this can be closed...

No idea what went wrong there, but it sounds like it had trouble registering on the user session bus,
