    invalid mit-magic-cookie-1 key

    I installed gparted on my new laptop I've upgraded 18.04. When I try to bring gparted up I get the error message invalid "mit-magic-cookie-1 key". My searching says this may have something to do with the Xauthority file. any help appreciated.

    For clarity it's not trying to run wayland, what does
    Code:
    echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
    show?

    I would call that first things first, to get that possibility out of the way.

    Seems I've had the problem about a year ago and got an answer here.
