Various user privilege problems after upgrading to Debian Wheezy
I've done to the Wheezy by only upgrading the packages (there was no manual), and now I have some problems related to user privileges and environment.
The described problems didn't exist on Squeeze, so they shouldn't be hardware related.

1. Suspend (s2ram) doesn't work as normal user (works as root, su s2ram), after typing as user:
KMS graphics driver is in use, skipping quirks.
/sys/power/state does not exist; what kind of ninja mutant machine is this?

2. Gedit runs as user, fails when run with su:
Debian:/# gedit

(gedit:12837): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

g_dbus_connection_real_closed: Remote peer vanished with error: Underlying GIOStream returned 0 bytes on an async read (g-io-error-quark, 0). Exiting.

but runs as su -lc 'gedit'

I'll add some other problems

Eh, after
chmod a+w /sys/power/state
user s2ram works, but can't set closing laptop lid to make the computer suspended.

The first problem is solved without work, some package upgrade could make it happen.

I've encountered this error on two separate occasions. Using the -l option with the su command will temporarily solve the problem, however, you must manually type the option each time or edit .profile or .bashrc. Both times I permanently fixed the errors/warnings by using synaptic to install both gvfs-bin and gvfs-backends. You may have accidentally removed these packages with 'apt-get autoremove' or something of that sort.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 02:34 AM.
