    Difference between System>Authorisations and System>Users and groups

    What is the difference? Even in Users and Groups, you can goto System>Users and Groups>Properties>User priveliges and grant/deny admin privileges. However, they don't seem to work or have any relevance at all. I can do things which are not ticked and sometimes have to get root access to do things that are indeed ticked. So does the users and groups privilege granting mechanism actually work?

    Thanks

    Re: Difference between System>Authorisations and System>Users and groups

    The difference is that System>Authorizations manages policies having to do with different applications and components while System>Users and Groups is used to restrict access to specific hardware or network resources.

    If you are getting unexpected behavior using Authorizations, that should be reported as a bug on bugs.launchpad.net

    Appreciate what the severe effort of many converging wills has produced.
