When I try and run virt-manager I get the following error:
authentication failed: Authorization requires authentication but no agent is available.
Libvirt URI is: qemu:///system
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 1185, in _open_thread
self.vmm = self._try_open()

if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed')
libvirtError: authentication failed: Authorization requires authentication but no agent is available.
I can run
in a terminal and it works. However, I would would like to know what is going on.
Obviously, I if I run virsh connect qemu:///system then I get the same error. Ideally I would like my user to be able to just click the virt-manager icon and have it run and connect automatically. However, it is not even popping a window to ask for my root password.
