Package: nodm
Version: 0.11-1.3
Followup-For: Bug #680264

I found information about this bug from year 2010 and it still exists!

It seems to be a combination the session not being local and/or not being active. As I understand, the session needs to be local and active to be validated correct and to get access to the priviledge. Missing priviledges are shutdown, hibernate, suspend, but also mount harddisks and usb devices.

I found a workaround for suspend, shutdown and hibernate, by setting up a localauthority file in /etc/polkit-1 (knowing that this is not the correct way to get it done).

I do not have a workaround for mounting and I expect, that there will be more problems because the session is not validated as it should be.

Does anybody know a solution or at least a workaround for mounting?

Thanks alot, also for all the other work!
