Unable to gain authorization for org.kde.kcontrol.kcmkdm.save (KDE 4.6.3)


Hello, Im running KDE 4.6.3 build from source. Everything works, but when going to system-settings, trying to change some stuff at Login Manager, for example AutoLogin to enabled, I get the following error:

Code:
polkitd(authority=local): Operator of unix-session:/org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Session1 FAILED to authenticate to gain authorization for action org.kde.kcontrol.kcmkdm.save for unix-process:21517:43051441 [/usr/bin/systemsettings -caption System Settings --icon preferences-system] (owned by unix-user:robert)
The idea is that I get the prompt to authenticate with a user, and of course I get user root and user robert, but when I select user root, it automatically closes with error: Unable to authenticate/execute the action: (code 4) and then of course I get the above error in /var/log/messages.

I know this issue is somehow related to polit setup and/or KDE, but can't figure out what. Please if someone has some ideas, let me know

NOTE: The system is slackware-current, 32bits.

Thank you!

Hi,

It may help you to look at Slackware packages for KDE SC 4.6.3

Check, but nothing really. The packages are not build differently, just they have some extra patches, but nothing to do with polkit or something like this.

Just checked what happens in Kubuntu 11.04 with KDE 4.6.2 from ubuntu repository and in Kubuntu when trying to do the same thing, systemsettings totally crashes. Trying to open Login Manager will crash systemsettings and also it's related to kind of the same idea.
