    Re: How to kill this service POLKITD?

    I've deleted some .* folders and files from some applications that I've used before and unistaled and now the system is OK (I hope).

    But I think that the problem was .pulse folder from pulse-audio. After deleting this folder my CPU was in the normal state. Looking inside the folder I've seen that were appearing some files and disappearing(like some services) very quickly!

    After restarting the PC the CPU is fine and also the memory!

    The idea is that the problem on my system was .pulse folder. After deleting this folder and also .dbus folder everything was OK.

    Thanks for helping me and hope that this issue will not appear anymore!
    After almost a week this problem is solved for me!

    I will let the topic open for a day or two to see how my system behave and after that I will mark as SOLVED!

    this was my exact problem and this issue worked for me as well.
    it also fixed my issue w/ PulseAudio not working before (E: module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-sink")

    THANKS!!!

    I would like to add that I too was having this problem - CPU usage would increase and increase with polkitd's memory usage increasing too. A quick google search led me to this thread.

    After deleting my .pulse and .dbus folders, as mentioned by vasiauvi, the problem disappeared! This means I can get back to sequentially watching the Star Wars series! Happy days.

    [SOLVED] Re: How to kill this service POLKITD?

    I fixed it differently.

    I allowed updates yesterday. These updates killed my audio, so I needed to recompile ALSA drivers. Non-functional audio made pulse audio to be non-functional too. As result polkitd took 50% (1 core) of my CPU. Deleting ~/.pulse/* didn't resolve the problem and ~/.pulse recreated.

    I restored my ~/.pulse/daemon.conf and recompiled the ALSA drivers. After the reboot audio went normal and nobody taking my CPU anymore.

    Here is an apt.log. Sorry, I'm not experienced enough to pick the package that broke the audio.

    Thank you dude!
    I've had the same problem and fixed it using your tip!
    I confirm it worked well for me!

    something renamed /etc/pulse/default.pa to /etc/pulse/default.pa.old.0

    renamed this back and rebooted and all works
