Hi all,

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

@deimos ~] sudo gvim /etc/rsnapshot.conf

E233: cannot open display

I'm running openSUSE 11.


This works:

@deimos ~] gnomesu gvim /etc/rsnapshot.conf

But I am sure I use to use 'sudo' with my older installations of openSUSE.

Hi Shawn,

As of SUSE Linux 10.1 sudo does not do X forwarding[1].

Cheers,
