comment gksu: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
Well its happening with all apps, even gedit. Also I have noticed that it is only happening for one of my two users on the system, not the other. I've been tinkering with a lot of things, but not recently. A list of possible things that could cause this behaviour could help a lot.

This does work indeed. So does that mean its an access control restriction? Any ideas what the cause of this could be?

@muru both of them give me the same Gtk-Warning as above. Same for gksu gedit. I have already formatted my disk through the command line. So it is not specifically gparted that I am concerned about.

@muru when I run gparted without gksu I get Root privileges are required for running gparted.

@A.B. I should clarify that this is not via ssh. It's on local host in a very normal terminal window. Infact opening gparted from the application menu has the same result.
