View Full Version : [ubuntu] 'Users and Groups' Error

August 14th, 2010, 10:37 PM
After I try to change anything, I type in my password at the Authenticate bit and it stalls for a while, then gives this message:

"An error occurred while checking for authorisations: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
You may report this as a bug."

I've tried restarting my system.

Help please!

edit: I'm getting the same problem in the Software Centre

I've managed to work around it by closing the Authenticate window before the error pops up, and I can now makes changes to the users. However I'd still love to know why it's coming up, if anyone can shed any light.
