UnknownMethod DescribeAll

gedit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Running gedit with -s -w fails:

$ gedit -s -w bla.txt
Failed to register: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "DescribeAll" with signature "" on interface "org.gtk.Actions" doesn't exist

Omitting the -w parameter however works correctly and the calling process is blocked, so perhaps the -w parameter is no longer needed? Anyway, just wanted you to know that -w is borked.

Thank you for your bug report, that seems to be reported upstream on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=742469 and they suggest using the command "gedit --wait --new-window" instead
