Device automonting in KDE fails with "Not in active session"
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:51:07 EST
Automounting of USB devices and CD-ROM in KDE fails, with this Konqueror error:
"Permission Denied: Not in active session"
It used to work perfectly with FC6, but is broken since I've upgraded to F7.
Running Fedora 7 + updates, and specifically: ConsoleKit-0.2.1-2.fc7
SELinux is disabled. Logging in and out, restarting the ConsoleKit service, and
rebooting don't fix this.
Mounting directly via /usr/bin/mount works fine.
The above 100% reproducible on my machine. I don't have a fresh F7 install at hand.
In one case, I used the "Start New Session" option in KDE to open a 2nd parallel
session, and then then mounting worked from the *2nd* session. However, I'm now
unable to reproduce this effect.
uid = '501'
realname = 'Foo Bar'
seat = 'Seat1'
session-type = ''
active = TRUE
x11-display = ':0'
x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
display-device = ''
remote-host-name = ''
is-local = TRUE
on-since = '2007-06-17T15:56:29Z'
and XDG_SESSION_COOKIE is set to a 61-char string.
Does it work with gnome-mount, e.g. 'gnome-mount -d /dev/sda1' from a non-root
Yes, gnome-mount works fine from a shell within the same session. Interesting.
BTW, I'm using kdm.
