Description of problem:

If you try to start gnome-lirc-properties, you'll get this:

WARNING:root:/usr/share/lirc-remotes/: Remote Antec_Veris_Premiere listed twice in imon/lircd.conf.imon-antec-veris and imon/lircd.conf.imon-mceusb.
Traceback (most recent call last):

dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: Error parsing subject struct

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnome-lirc-properties
Actual results:

Python exception

Expected results:

The app loads

Additional info:

This is due to a change in policy-kit that requires the start-time to be specified explicitly in the CheckAuthorization call.

This can be fixed by adding 'start-time':dbus.UInt64(0,variant_level=1) to the subject dict in the CheckAuthorization calls in policykit.py in the gnome-lirc-properties source.
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2010-06-23 09:52:49 EDT
Already fixed in updates-testing, and due in the updates shortly.
