    Re: After Upgrade to F26: Always asked for root password on login (additionally)

    Disabling Blueman's networking plugin and KillSwitch plugin seems to work for me.

    Re: After Upgrade to F26: Always asked for root password on login (additionally)

    there's a bug open about this blueman networkmanager plugin issue. However, I'm not sure of the maintenance status of blueman though as it has been orphaned a couple of times now. blueberry seems to work okay for connections with my own hardware but I know that won't be the case for every usage scenario.

    Again, if you find issues with blueberry, they need reporting so they can be fixed.

    I was tempted to do this given that the bug report isn't getting any attention (not that I've ever seen a bug get any attention on bugzilla) and this is actually delaying the startup of the compositor I'm using in XFCE, however the pulseaudio bluetooth module has a dependency on blueman; it's something I actually use frequently.

    Really quite shocked that this was F26 got released with this bug - not because it's huge, but because it's visible on boot and affects everyone using bluetooth.

    To follow up in this it seems that the pulse bluetooth module can work with blueman or blueberry, it's just a case of removing blueman AFTER installing blueberry; or just reinstalling the module ofcourse.

    Does F26 use blueberry by default then, meaning we're just affected because we upgraded?

    I can only confirm blueberry has replaced blueman in MATE-Compiz spin. I would think the other GTK based desktops have done the same as blueman has been orphaned so many times recently.

    also yes, it's blueman being left over from previous builds causing the issue with upgraded systems

    I had the same issue. I removed blue man and the 2 additional prompts went away. I use Bluetooth upon occasion however I'll look for a work around once I have more time. For now all is good and the annoyance of the additional prompts during reboots is gone. Thanks to lose who have provided commentary in this. It took some time to find the thread on this specific issue.

    Assuming you've already added yourself to "wheel" group.
    Drop this content to file /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/81-blueman.rules :

    [CODE]
    polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (action.id == "org.blueman.rfkill.setstate" && subject.local && subject.active && subject.isInGroup("wheel")) {
    return polkit.Result.YES;
    }
    if (action.id == "org.blueman.network.setup" && subject.local && subject.active && subject.isInGroup("wheel")) {
    return polkit.Result.YES;
    }
    });

    [CODE]

    This should be enough to relax polkit.

    Thanks voleg, I just added the rules on this laptop, rebooted, and the extra two auth steps vanished

    Do you know where to find the documentation explaining how these rules work? Thx,
