• Antergos asks for password twice when I mount disc image files


    Hi
    I created a bug report about this issue in Gnome bugzilla
    https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=786476

    A Gnome dev said this is a distro specific issue.
    I tested some distros with Gnome (Fedora, Manjaro, Solus), Antergos is the only distro that asks for password to mount disc image files.
    How can I modifiy my udisks policy file to eliminates these password dialogs?
    Thanks.

  • simple install:

    sudo pacman -S cdemu-client cdemu-daemon
    

    reboot and you can loop mount from rightclick menu inside filebrowser…
    open with CDEmu client

    Thank you.
    This command installs kernel as dependency. I use kernel-zen.

  • @Strangiato linux-zen
    there is no version for your Kernel ready… you can build against your kernel, but seems to be not the simple solution, may then change the udisks policy to what devs say you:

    <allow_active>yes</allow_active> for “loop-setup” in the UDisks policy
    but it is out of my knowledge why we have this or how to change…

    I also dont know how to change it.
    That’s why I created this topic. 😊

  • @Strangiato asking @developers here would be a chance then, but i think it is not choosen by Antergos, and is related to Archlinux itself.

    I doubt it.
    Manjaro Gnome does not ask for any password to mount disc image files.

  • Manjaro is not Archlinux, they have take them apart of the Core-System.
    On my ArchLinux installation it is the same as on Antergos.

  • Hi,

    We do not pack udisks2, so we use the same package Arch uses.

    I’ve checked my /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.UDisks2.policy file, and I already have <allow_active>yes</allow_active> in the org.freedesktop.udisks2.loop-setup section.

    I’m afraid that’s not the problem (or so it seems).

    These are the defaults:

     <defaults>
          <allow_any>auth_admin</allow_any>
          <allow_inactive>auth_admin</allow_inactive>
          
          <allow_active>yes</allow_active>
        </defaults>
    

    You could try to set allow_any to yes, just for testing (as this could be a security hole).

  • I will back to default kernel and use CDEMU.
    Thank you all.
