I've just installed Ubuntu 11.10 and created a new user (and added them to the sudo group).
When I log in as the new user (not root) and try to open gedit I get the following error:
** (gedit:17414): WARNING **: Could not connect to session bus
I've also used ufw to only allow OpenSSH and port 80 connections (if that is relevant?). I am using Putty and Xming to access the server (with exactly the same X11 setup as I've used successfully with other servers in the past).
I've read elsewhere that this is normal behaviour if you're logged in as root, but I am not...
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
