View Full Version : GUI title-bar no longer shows when running as root

In Natty, GUI programs running as root (e.g. gksudo gedit) were clearly identified as root with the prefix "ROOT:" in the title-bar.

This is no longer the case.

I think that removing the prefix is a backward step, and I'd like to raise this as a bug, because I found it extremely helpful.

What do you think?
