GDBus.Error

Mon Oct 14, 2013 12:59 pm

Hey,

When I turn on my raspberry, I get this error message:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject
After a I did a small search about it, it turned out that it happens because there is more than one "PolicyKit" package installed, and I should only keep one.

I used the following command to list the available "PolicyKit" packages:

Code: Select all

[b]dpkg --get-selections | grep polkit[/b]
libpolkit-agent-1-0:armhf			install
libpolkit-backend-1-0:armhf			install
libpolkit-gobject-1-0:armhf			install
lxpolkit					install
Which one should I keep?

My solution to the problem was to edit the file /etc/xdg/autostart/lxpolkit.desktop by adding the text 'LXDE' to the line 'NotShownIn' thus:

Code: Select all

NotShowIn=GNOME;KDE;LXDE
The lx policy kit still runs, it just doesn't report errors ...

This method doesn't work for me as it the command tells me 'access denied', so I don't know how else to get rid of this error message and without getting rid of it I cant use anything on the desktop.

Try editing it with

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/lxpolkit.desktop
from a terminal window.

Return to “Raspbian”
