Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 613976
polkit shows authentication dialog on display 0 not the desired one
Last modified: 2013-03-05 23:03:40 EST
Description of problem:
when running vnc session from terminal from GNOME authenticating dialog shows itself on screen 0 not in the vnc session one. What more if I run vnc session with running Xorg authentication fails by default.
Hardcoded display 0?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open vnc session from GNOME
2.connect to the session
3.install package via add/remove software app
auth dialog shows on display 0
auth dialog shown on the same display as app needing it
This is a problem with VNC not properly registering with ConsoleKit. Since polkit relies on ConsoleKit having correct information available, this isn't something that can be fixed in polkit. I think bug 528511 is related to this.
