Ran zypper up earlier this week on my daughters
x86_64) and now when she connects here phone a dialog appears
how is it connected, via USB cable, does it appear as a mass
requesting the root password.
The message, although this is probably not very useful info ;)
"An Application is attempting to perform an action that requires
privileges. Authentication as the super user is required."
That is the policykit agent, in the normal case (i.e. default
policykit privileges and everyting working as intended) a local
user whose session is considered active by systemd-logind should be
authorized to mount any removable storage.
Marcus already wrote some instructions for you to check against
policykit whether you are authorized to mount filesystems.
In order to determine whether the current session is marked
active, find the session number of the current user session with:
loginctl -al list-sessions
and then check with:
loginctl show-session <number> | grep ^Active
whether it is active.
Prior to zypper up this did not happen. I did not keep
a log of the
packages that were updated.
But zypper did, have a look at /var/log/zypp/history. Note that
upgrade actions are referred to as |install|. Would be interesting
if there are any suspicious updates (udisks2, udev, systemd,
policykit) which might have triggered that.
I checked the settings for removable media and
everything looks OK
to me. This is probably not XFCE specific, but this is one of our
more helpful and friendly lists.
Yes, this is something lower in the stack, policykit privileges
or your session not being marked as active
I also installed kdenlive, lombar, and some other
recently, but I have a hard time connecting these apps to this
event. My first guess would be some ill advised change in policy
kit, but I have not seen other people complain.
Yep, I'm not seeing anything like that, at least with flash drives
and SD cards.
