Description jj3666 2011-09-21 18:53:59 UTC
Description of problem:
Clicking on unlock button in Gnome 3 control panel items prompts for the password of the account created during install and not the current user.

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

How reproducible:
Click on unlock button while logged in with secondary admin account.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install adding 1st user to admin group
2. Create 2nd user, add to wheel group, and login with that user
3. Open gnome-control-center, select item with unlock feature (ie user/groups), and press unlock
Actual results:
prompts for password of user created during install

Expected results:
prompts for password of current user, if admin

Additional info:
I remember there being groups desktop_admin_r desktop_user_r in 14 that might be missing with 15 to control this?  The package polkit-desktop-policy use to create these groups if I remember right?

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2011-09-21 19:46:41 UTC
This is a problem with gnome-shell's authentication agent (the one in polkit-gnome, used in GNOME 3 fallback mode, is fine). There's also an upstream bug about it here:  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=659310

Reassigning to gnome-shell.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 17:52:00 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
