I try to change the picture on my system... kde trunk running on opensuse
factory. from Systemsetting Login Screen Users
I choose the user and the picture and then polkit gets into scene asking for a
password... I put my root password, my user password but polkit is not happy...
keeps asking me for the password like the password is wrong -- Authentication
failure, please try again. (which is not the case).

after a while I get this window
Unable to authenticate/execute the action: DBus Backend error: could not
contact the helper. Connection error: . Message error: Did not receive a reply.
Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the
message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or
