I'm really new and from the dark side (Windows)...
I must be doing something wrong.
The only way I can get gedit to run with a tool bar (Save As etc.) is to launch it with sudo from a terminal.
I have the same issue with FileZilla. It runs in 'kiosk' mode (wont save passwords) unless its launched with sudo.
Is there some setting for me as a regular user, that will allow these applications to run in 'adult' mode when placed on the left icon bar on the desktop?
I see FileZilla has irritated other and maybe that's the way it is, but gedit?
Shouldn't I be able to have a full featured text editor without becoming a root user?
