Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2009-05-22 20:11:27 UTC
Created attachment 345158 [details]
patch for ck-xinit-session to have it tell the bus about $XDG_SESSION_COOKIE

Description of problem:
Even with xorg-x11-xinit-1.0.9-7, when I plug in a removable device, I get an access-denied error (org.freedesktop.devicekit.disks.filesystem-mount) if my session was started with 'startx'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.9-7

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to runlevel 3.
2. Log in.
3. 'startx'
4. Plug in a USB thumbdrive.
  
Additional info:
This appears to be happening because gvfs-gdu-volume-monitor is autostarted by the session bus daemon, which started before we had the right session cookie, which causes it to not be seen as part of the active session.
