    Trusty error editing a text file with admin privileges

    Is there a fix for this?

    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    
    (gedit:14285): Gtk-WARNING **: Calling Inhibit failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files

    Have you tried
    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    And then just navigate to etc/default/grub, 1st back it up, then make your changes save and close.

    It worked fine here but then I most always use the code you have stated. It is easier to navigate between folders and the text editor that way.
