Greetings all I am having trouble automounting USB as non privileged user with udisks-glue.

First off I have compiled: ntfs-g3 with and without external-fuse.
kernel ntfs as module and not in use

Next:
I have a file in /etc/local.d/
that simply contains
Code:
udisks-glue --config /etc/udisks-glue.conf


when I plug in a usb drive (vfat)
It gets auto mounted but only root can access it.

I have a /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/10-udisks.pkla
Code:
Users in group wheel can play with udisks]
Identity=unix-group:wheel
Action=org.freedesktop.udisks.*
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=yes
ResultActive=yes



I can mount manually as non root with:
Code:
udisks --mount /dev/sdb1 --mount-options rw,noatime


I have a simple /etc/udisks-glue.conf for testing:
Code:
   filter disks {
           optical = false
           partition_table = false
           usage = filesystem
       }

       match disks {
           automount = true
           automount_options = sync
       }




I have tried removing
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy
or setting everything to yes for testing?
Any thoughts appreciated.

Aside from just swallowing the pill and using consolekit....

Since 0.106, polkit isn't using pkla files.

udisks-glue should be running as your user, not root which is probably the case here

Thanks truc I added it to my openbox autostart.sh and got rid of the file in local.d
now if I am in openbox it will auto mount and I have permissions.

The problem of working when not in a x session remains.
That narrows it down to a udisks-glue problem running as root.
how do you debug udisks-glue?
/usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/udisks-glue.debug
is a bin file and I cant access it.

VoidMage:
Can Consolekit automount any removal device so any user can use it?
I am not opposed to using consolkit in fact I am running it in my default runlevel on my laptop.
Do you know of a way to debug consolkit? I just figured the kit stuff is not really designed for laptops.

Consolekit or Polkit configs went to some sort of java xml looking files that are in /etc/dbus-1/system.d ?
so nothing goes in
/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d ?
I see a java file :
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-default.rules

I noticed if I remove the file:
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy
udisks-glue would not work.

I made a copy of that file and changed everything "yes"
I will test if that helps.
Thanks
