comment Unable to run gedit as a different user
I am on Ubuntu 12.04 OS on my desktop and I am using a terminal to open files. (su - bar or su bar) doesn't seem to make any difference and I don't want to use vi or vim. gedit would be preferable, but I still see an error related to DISPLAY while launching gedit as a different user than the logged in user.
