Error starting Virtual Machine Manager: No D-BUS daemon running in fedora

Some days back I was trying to start #virt-manager application from my fedora 18 system and got the error :

 

The error details looked :

 

Error starting Virtual Machine Manager: No D-BUS daemon running

 

But when checking ‘dbus’ status I noticed, its up and running ..

then whats the issue ?

Later I found , I am able to run #virt-manager as a non previleged user

then I tried again as root , that too worked.. Only this shell gives me error , unfortunately it was a shell where I did “su” to become “root” , later trying “su-” also worked.. So something going on with “su” and “virt-manager”…
