It's a problem with your PATH. sudo does not change your PATH, but su
does. You should try something of this sort to see the differences:

$ echo $PATH
<output of your user's PATH>
$ su -
# echo $PATH
<output of root's PATH>

The two outputs are probably different. In particular, I think
/usr/local/bin[1] is missing from your user's PATH, but exists in root's
PATH. If you do something like:

$ export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
$ geany

it should work.

[1] /usr/local is your installation prefix, as shown in your first e-mail
Kind regards,
