Cinamon crashing and org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1


Dear Guru,
I have a problem!
Cinamon is crashing... I have linux mint 17 and the crash started after an update not completed (some files could not be downloaded and I replied continue the install anyhow). The PC worked well until restart.
then Cinamon is constantly crashing. In secure mode I can connect only through cable, I have tried to open the update manager and it can give me the information that there are many new updates that I can do (it can download this info) but when I click on install nothing happen - it do not even ask the admin password.
How can I make it work again?

I have copy/pasted the following error from the log journal, maybe it can help? sorry I am a newbie...

thanks a million for your help!!

Problem solve with this, google is faster than the forum ;-)

If you got this kind of message (/var/log/syslog):

[system] Activated service ‘org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit’ failed: The permission of the setuid helper is not correct
Then it means that your /usr properties has been changed (i.e.: chown -R root:root /usr –> never do this!!!)

Change back the fiel to his origin:

$ ll /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
-rwxr-xr– 1 root messagebus 294384 oct. 3 23:00 /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper*
$ sudo chmod u+s /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
$ ll /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
-rwsr-xr– 1 root messagebus 294384 oct. 3 23:00 /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper*

—-

After restarting the service: $ service dbus restart

It should be OK:
