A fresh install of 14.04 with KDE installed yields the following error:

[...]

[...]

which tends to spam to stdout/stderr and syslog, which is rather annoying. It seems to trigger whenever I connect to the box via ssh. Any pointers on how to fix the problem would be much appreciated.

    I have been wondering about this myself but don't know what to do. May 15, 2015 at 21:19
  • I see a LOT of these messages in the syslog... OS: Xubuntu 14.04.5 with kernel 3.19.0-78-generic. Both answers below didn't help to get rid of them

I "fixed" it by:

apt-get remove consolekit

consolekit is no longer actively maintained. As far as I'm aware there is a fork named consolekit2 and apparently for systemd users basically the same functionality is included in systemd-logind. As I'm only using a vm without desktop, no replacement is needed at all.

Running

sudo apt-get install lxpolkit

fixed the problem.

I am running Lubuntu.

What caused this problem for me was that the package policykit was not installed, so I installed it :

sudo apt-get install policykit

The problem seems to be solved after doing this.
