Polkit Authentication Agent

Hi guys,

By default, Xfce uses the Gnome Polkit Authentication. I am not a fan of using Gnome elements when using Xfce. So I did some googling and found the following polkit for Xfce in the ArchLinux Wiki.

https://github.com/ncopa/xfce-polkit

Has anyone used it so far, tested and made experiences with it?

Thanks,
Regards

Re: Polkit Authentication Agent

There is the freedesktop polkit agent.
In Debian it's libpolkit-agent-1-0
No Gnome agent needed

Re: Polkit Authentication Agent

Also in ArchLinux there is this Polkit package. It looks like you are mixing up something here. I am talking about the Polkit Authentication Agent. The counterpart to the Polkit.

Re: Polkit Authentication Agent

I use xfce-polkit and it works fine. That being said, in Arch, the polkit-gnome package has minimal (only gtk3 really) dependencies.

You're right, my bad. However, that is the 'internal' agent I mentioned. The question here is the external agent which is only required if you need the graphical password dialog.

I use a rule file to allow the internal agent to grant or deny, without a password dialog. The DE agent from xfce seems not to have made it into Debian yet! Please ignore me!
