Description of problem:

login as administer user who is in group wheel, and whose primary group id is wheel. Then launch gnome abrt tool.  When switching to system tab from user tab, authenticate dialog appears, but it will not accept the user password or the root password. It says "sorry I can't find that."

Steps to Reproduce:

login as administer user who is in group wheel, and whose primary group id is wheel. Then launch gnome abrt tool.  When switching to system tab from user tab, authenticate dialog appears, but it will not accept the user password or the root password. It says "sorry I can't find that."

Actual results:

unusable

Expected results:

to be able to authenticate with administrator credentials, and view system bug crashes on this system.

Additional info:

I have the same authentication problem on the users and groups gnome app.

ABRT tries to authenticate you for 'org.freedesktop.problems.getall' polkit action. Since you have told you have the same problem with another application, I would rather ask polkit maintainers for a help here instead of blindly digging into this problem.

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2014-04-08 10:45:45 UTC
What desktop environment do you use?

Please reproduce the problem (trying to authenticate once more), then attach _full_ logs from that time frame (available e.g. through journalctl).

Comment 3 euphobot 2014-04-08 15:23:06 UTC
Sorry, client canceled the project. The desktop was gnome.

Comment 4 Miloslav Trmač 2014-04-08 15:26:32 UTC
Thanks for the information.  I'm afraid without more data there's not much we can do.

Comment 5 euphobot 2014-04-08 15:50:38 UTC
I understand.  I do believe it is connected to the gnome app
