I have troubles with infamous colord policy prompts on Gnome 3.28.1. With XFCE desktop on the same system I have no such problem.

I work via xrdp and always get this prompt and I cannot disable it.

Whenever I change <action id="org.freedesktop.color-manager.create-device"> policy in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.color.policy to <allow_any>yes</allow_any> I get Gnome fatal error in logs.

UPDATED logs after WinEunuuchs2Unix advice:

The same happens if I simply try to login interactively with password prompt.

I tried to create custom pkla file in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d:

<action id="org.freedesktop.color-manager.create-device">
  <description xml:lang="en">Create a color managed device</description>
  <message xml:lang="en">Authentication is required to create a color managed device</message>
  <defaults>
    <allow_any>yes</allow_inactive>
    <allow_inactive>yes</allow_inactive>
    <allow_active>yes</allow_active>
  </defaults>
</action>

It seems to me it's equivalent to directly changing actions is /usr/share/polkit-1/actions.

I also tried to create global allow pkla rule as per this proposal:

[No password prompt]
Identity=unix-group:sudo
Action=*
ResultActive=yes

I also have global rule in /etc/polkit-1/rules.d

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
if (subject.isInGroup("group")) {
      return polkit.Result.YES;
   }
});

As I got it, if I have polkit < 0.106, the rules are not processed, and one should use pkla files. Correct me, if I'm wrong. My pkaction --version shows 0.105.

None of the above worked. Which steps should I try and how to debug this?

  • At this point there are too many variables we don't know if it's XML problems, Polkit configuration location precedence or what. So I'd suggest undoing every change you made, and start again with just a file in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d for your specific action and user. Also, please include the Polkit messages corresponding to the colord prompts (both with and without any configuration changes). – muru May 6 '18 at 11:05
  • Polkit messages are absolutely the same (given above in question), here are full relevant syslogs before and after which also seems the same to me. That's why I think my pkla rule is not parsed and is not active. – Suncatcher May 6 '18 at 11:30
  • Maybe there is a way to view more specific polkit logs elsewhere? I created logging rule in /etc/polkit-1/rules.d but it seems to be not working too. – Suncatcher May 6 '18 at 11:33

I had a problem not being able to connect to vpn from ssh session on ubuntu 18.04. The problem was related to polkit, since

nmcli general permissions

Shows the lack of permissiosns.

I've succeed with following way of adding custom polkit rule with ubuntu 18.04 (still polkit version 0.105, no support of javascript rules). As root I executed the command:

 # cat > /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/allow-all-for-group-sudo-polkit105.pkla

and entered following contents (note, this allows EVERYTHING for users of sudo group, may be risky):

[Allow all without authentication for members of sudo group even for ssh sessions]
Identity=unix-group:sudo
Action=*
ResultAny=yes

After this without restarting of any services or rebooting I got permissions to use any nmcli commands from ssh.

The issue was related to incorrect pass of single entry gamma ramp instead of a 256 entry gamma ramp. The bug was fixed in xorgxrdp version 0.2.6.

Check the syntax of your pkla file. There might be hidden characters preventing polkit from parsing the file. See here.
