some time ago I moved from Systemd to OpenRC. It was very different, to be able to use audio and webcam I had to add my user to the audio, optical and video group. As some software uses pkexec to be run as superuser, when I opened them (Because I use XFCE) nothing happened. When I used Systemd this didn´t happened, and it´s configured to use /usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 (which I have it installed). When I write pkexec in a terminal this is the output
$ pkexec ==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.policykit.exec === Authentication is required to modify fingerprint authentication data Authenticating as: (MY USERNAME) Password: polkit-agent-helper-1: error response to PolicyKit daemon: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: No session for cookie ==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED === Error executing command as another user: Not authorized This incident has been reported.
I don´t know how to enable the polkit daemon/service in OpenRC, in Systemd the service it´s named "polkit". But there is ConsoleKit (what´s the difference?) which is seems to fail
$ service consolekit status * status: stopped # service consolekit restart * starting consolekit . . $ service consolekit status * status: crashed
My distro is Parabola (Arch Based, with the difference that is removes all the nonfree packages from the repo & Arch itself, as Arch uses Systemd, Parabola too) and I changed to OpenRC in a virtual machine, and I am testing it.
Thanks in advance
