After last world update lxde startup gives error message
Code:
Error initializing authority: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: Permission denied

Shutdown or reboot is possible from command line only.

Up to now not solved. There must be something wrong with polkit. Every polkit command e.g.
Code:
# pkaction
Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: Permission denied
gives the same error message.
Edit:
This problem I have in profile 17.0. Old installation 13.0 is OK. Both amd64. In the meantime I upgraded world - no change.

After endless searching in different linux distros I found the clue in Gentoo forums:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1007656-start-0.html

Novazur's problem was different, but solution is the same:
GID of the messagebus in /etc/group and /etc/passwd has to be equal.
