Hi!
Whenever I try to save a setting in "systemsettings" policyeditor, it won't be saved. It does all, when I click on close and reopen, the settings disapperared. In my case I want to change the policy for "mounting system internal disk", so my esata drive gets automounted.
Is this a bug? Anything forgotten? Besides that, the hal-less system works pretty good.

Hello?
This problem still persists after the update to 4.6.1
Is kwallet or something like that needed for that stuff to function properly?

Bump

I have the same problem, settings are not saved -- very aggravating. Also using kde 4.6.1.

Confirmed, also update didn't fix anything. I also have filled a bug report.
In the KDE forum they say it's gentoo specific...

Have a look here:

In order for the settings panel to operate properly, you need to have an operational PolicyKit stack. This requires that Qt is compiled with Glib integration enabled. Please ensure Qt is built with Glib integration enabled (which is the Gentoo default I believe if you are using PolicyKit components - which is again the default when using KDE packages)

Same here with 4.6.2. Annoying indeed.
I have seen your bug report in bugzilla and voted for.
In the mean time I have been obliged to edit all my /usr/share/polkit-1/actions files by hand !

Fortunately use of ZZ in vim is not constrained... yet ! :D

I know it's been a year since last activity in this thread, but... any news on this?

I just discovered I'm also hit by this. I use a stable amd64 box with the currently stable KDE (4.8.5) and with the default policykit USE flag enabled (i.e., untouched).

I tried to find the original poster's bug to no avail. I also read the link by Xywa but all I can conclude is that Gentoo was unabled back then to store the user changes in systemsettings because of a bug in KDE. Is this still the case?
