do not run under root
Last modified: 2012-10-18 12:28:52 MSD
Description of problem:
gwenview crashes if run under root
[root@localhost user]# gwenview
gwenview(16878)/kdeui (kdelibs): Session bus not found
To circumvent this problem try the following command (with Linux and bash)
Aborted (core dumped)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. urpmi gwenview
But it can be run. For example,
export $(dbus-launch); gwenview
You need enter for root as "su -", NOT "su". And all work.
That's right. Single 'su' doesn't set necessary environment variables, so this behavior is expected. Use 'su -' instead.
