pkexec gedit not working after importing policykit

asked 2017-01-01 06:04:51 -0500

I'm on fedora 25 and I've imported a policykit for gedit but my terminal still says:

No protocol specified
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

Link to a small guide for pkexec and policykits

I've followed the guide above on fedora 24 and it worked right away but now I'm lost.

The gnome/wayland devs think users are too dumb to have a gui with root privileges so disabled it, use xorg session instead if you want it to work in F25.
