On a system running Plasma and Enlightenment, no users can automount USB disks. All belong to plugdev group, one belongs to wheel.

Code:
$ udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdc
==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount ===
Authentication is required to mount Crucial Gizmo! (/dev/sdc)
Authenticating as: root
Password:


$ eix -l udisks
[snip ...]

Installed versions: 2.7.4-r1(2)(18:22:32 03/09/18)(acl gptfdisk introspection nls -cryptsetup -debug -elogind -lvm -selinux -systemd KERNEL="linux")


I've compared polkit rules with other systems where automounting works, but can't spot anything different. What have I missed?
