    Authentication Required for rfkill / Authentication required for networking

    Odd thing: When I login, it asks me to re-enter my password twice more.
    A dialog pops up and says "authentication required for networking" and another one for "authencation required for rfkill" or something similar.
    Any ideas how to make them disappear?

    This is F27 and Gnome - I believe it started after I dnf installed a few bluetooth tools to get my non-functional bluetooth working..; I cant seem to find which ones now.
    Many thanks, -turgut

    Yeah that is "PolKit", I have been trying to run away from that little "utility" to no avail.

    The worse is when you have some KDE apps running, the polkit dialog shows for 1 second, and then hides behind the KDE app, and most of the times you miss it, effectively killing your session in some way or another.

    Many thanks -- it kinda "healed" by itself.. It stopped asking for password
