Ubuntu – How to sync the root gedit with the user gedit’s preferences


When I open a file with root gedit I'd like to have the same setup as my normal gedit. So theme, preferences, and addons.

Can I set up some sym links in the right spot to achieve this?

Best Answer

I think this is quite impossible because gedit manages its settings through gconf and to sync these it would require a gnome-settings-deamon running for root.
