Hello Carlos,

Do you mean that you log in the full graphical session, as root? You are
not supposed to do that.

Yes of course, I know that, but did it to see if the same condition arose as
when I su'd to root to run grsync.

Since I knew that grsync worked properly as a user, I tried doing a thing
that I don't know if it is possible or doable. While logged in as root,
in a terminal, I did an "su bob", got my proper domain prompt, and then
did a "grsync", and got the following error message:

No protocol specified
(grsync:83621): Gtk WARNING **: Cannot open display :0.0

Obviously. You have to use "su - bob", not "su bob".

Obvious to you maybe, but not to me. Thanks for the lesson. I will try that
the next time I log in as (shudder) root.

The configuration tools for gnome are gconf-editor and

When I try those to commands, both as a user and as root I get a
"command not found".

Thanks for your input Carlos.
