Exclamation user account cannot reboot or automount in Plasma 5.17.2


In Plasma 5.17.2 I cannot reboot or automount USB drives. I was able to before. The "Removable Device Automounter" background service is running.

Could this be related to the kernel-firmware upgrade in -current from Nov 8? If you have installed that update but not rebooted yet, you may need to (or, I guess shut down and then boot again in your case if rebooting is not working).

It might be related (I'm using kernel 4.19.84), but I've rebooted and am still running into the same issue.

It was worth a shot. I had USB automount stop working under -current ktown after the kernel-firmware update, but everything was working again after rebooting.

What groups does your user belong to? Most of the time, issues like these are due to the user missing some recommended groups.

I created a new test user account and logged in to Plasma with it, but it, too, only lists "Lock" and "Log Out" in the Session tab of the Application Launcher.

I wonder if it has anything to do with these errors I'm getting in syslog:
Code:
usb 7-2: Device not responding to setup address.
usb 7-2: can't read configurations, error -22
usb 7-2: can't set config #1, error -71
usb 7-2: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 7-2: device not accepting address 39, error -71
usb 7-2: no configurations
usb 7-4-port4: disabled by hub (EMI?), re-enabling...
usb 7-4.4: device descriptor read/64, error -32
usb usb7-port2: unable to enumerate USB device
and
Code:
ck-launch-session: error connecting to ConsoleKit
(I'm using kernel 4.19.85 now.)

Well, I reinstalled ktown with slackpkg+ (
Code:
slackpkg reinstall ktown
) and the issue went away.
