View Full Version : vnc policy authorization failure when trying to add packages

24th August 2009, 02:02 PM
It took me a while to get VNC going. It was easier with FC8-10. Once I got finished and was actually able to log in and see my remote desktop I tried to add some software... virtualbox.

When I double click on the RPM I get popup that states.

"The action could not be completed. Failed to install file. You do not have the necessary privileges to perform this action"

When I close that dialogue another one pops up that states"

"The action could not be completed."

When I click on more details the dialogue states.

"Policykit authorization failure"

How can I make this work???

I found where I can set to allow console sessions the ability to install applications but the authorization dialogue has the button greyed out. I tried running it as root and as my user account. This was directly from the local desktop...

Any way to change this
