Trying to run gedit as root produces following output:

>pkexec gedit  (3079)
error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set in the environment.
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(gedit:3079): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
>pkexec gedit (3079) returned '1'

Am I missing something?
