Apport cannot open browser when running as root

Bug #82939 reported by Marc Tardif on 2007-02-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

Version: 0.47

When reporting a bug with apport, a browser window should open with the crash details attached. Instead, when it is run as root, no browser window is open which leaves the user thinking the bug was reported automatically.

Reproduction steps:
1. Start the Herd 3 live CD
2. Click on the apport crash report in the notification area
3. Confirm the bug and click the "Send report" button.

Expected result:
The browser opens up as claimed

Actual result:
The apport GUI closes silently.
