    Re: You are not allowed to perform this action

    I tried creating a new user and copy the .config files as well as all other files in my other user /home dir. It doesn't appear to be working. It was from a backup on an external Hard drive. I restored that to new user and took ownership on the whole shebang. Very slow and is almost non usable. Should I blow away the home directory and then restore only data? Or is there something else I can do?

    Linux is NOT Windows. Doesn't PRETEND to be, Doesn't WANT to be; Don't try to MAKE it be.

    After studying this for days now, mickee384 will you try to install this please
    Code:
    sudo apt install policykit-1-gnome
    and either restart or logout, I prefer the restart, it's cleaner.
    I'm using the New XFCE 4.18 and I install it regularly:
    Code:
    apt policy policykit-1-gnome
    policykit-1-gnome:
      Installed: 0.105-7+b1
      Candidate: 0.105-7+b1
      Version table:
     *** 0.105-7+b1 500
            500 https://deb.kaisenlinux.org kaisen-rolling/main amd64 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
         0.105-7 500
            500 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye/main amd64 Packages
    This is apparently a little known bug with XFCE and Mate in Ubuntu where it tries to use policykit-1 instead of policykit-1-gnome. Even running 'pkexec synaptic' on the command line would fail (just as described in the bug). Installing policykit-1-gnome fix's this issue for me.
    If this is still the same please see if anything is in "/var/log/auth.log "

    The first think I suspected was permissions and group membership... sudo for possible elevated permissions, and plugdev for mounts (includes USB's). If it were something with gksudo or equivalent, you would not have the errors on USB's (plugdev). So then have you submit the output from "id".
