Just found this, and it seems it can be merged with polkit-automount-upower-rules (or vice-versa). Is there any automagickal way to convert the old actions format into the new one?

I will disown this package from now onwards.

If someone wants to adopt it, feel free to do it :)

This needs to be updated, the rules even use the old ini-style polkit format.

Version 0.4-3: small update (should/might fix problems with cpufreqselector).

Yes, this one, but I don't think it is your change that made a difference, it was only because I changed the wrong permissions on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d!

Thank you

@vnoel: With the "new version", you're meaning the one I've put in dropbox, right? (just to confirm)
If so, I'll update it to AUR...


vnoel commented on 2012-11-04 14:13

Well, I think it was just a problem with the permissions of /use/share/polkit-1/rules.d :)

It works well with this new version after I fixed the permissions.

@vnoel: I'm not sure about that problem about cpufreqselector... ATM I'm not using GNOME (I'm using Openbox). If you try to use it with sudo "sudo cpufreqselector <rule>", does it work for you?

Else, if you want to give a try, I've done a small change in the cpufreqselector polkit rule. You can grab the (testing) tarball here:

Please give me a feedback... Cheers!

@3V0LU710N: Alright, and what about the cpufreqselector rules?
I guess they are not taken care of by logind... is it?

But anyway, I kept the package installed and I kept my user in the power group, but cpufreq-selector asks for a password, so I guess there is something wrong.

In my logs I have these errors:
Error opening rules directory: Error opening directory '/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d': Permission denied (g-file-error-quark, 2)
