If your using gnome wayland it isn't going to work as there is no display set for it to function.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that in order to use gui tools like gedit to edit system files, such as /etc/default/grub, it was supposed to be necessary to use gksudo or gksu, since "sudo gedit /etc/default/grub" will not work under wayland, since wayland's security policy forbids ths. I think I managed it by logging into root first. "# gedit /etc/default/grub". What is the prefered way to do this? I've also read it's possible to use "beesu".

Thanks
