no mount of USB drives as normal user after upgrade

Hello,

after the upgrade to 4.16 I cannot mount usb drives/sticks al normal user and automatically mount does not work anymore. If I try to mount a stick a dialog appears  that it is not possible because "Not authorized to perform operation". Only if I log in as root the drives become mounted automatically.
I use siduction (debian unstable) with lightdm as window manager but I tried also sddm with the same result. I tried also a new user without success.
What can I do?

Regards
Peter

Re: no mount of USB drives as normal user after upgrade

Is thunar-volman installed? Is thunar running in daemon mode:

ps -ef | grep -i thunar | grep daemon

Might also be a polkit issue.

Since I have done the upgrade I see the following error in the jounal:

Jan 05 09:54:57 master sddm-helper[1803]: gkr-pam: unable to locate daemon control file

Maybe it has something to do with the problem. I am not an expert.

Re: no mount of USB drives as normal user after upgrade

I don't think sddm would be the cause here.

Is thunar-volman installed (and do you have "Mount removeable drives when hotplugged" enabled in Settings Manager > Removeable Drives and Media)?

On Arch, we also need gvfs and udisks2. Make sure you have similar packages also installed?
Also:

ps -ef | grep [u]disk

...to see whats running.

No, sddm isn't the problem, I've tried also lightdm with the same result and the same entry in the journal.

thunar-volman ist installed and "Mount removeable drives when hotplugged" is enabled.

ps -ef | grep [u]disk
root         870       1  0 09:54 ?        00:00:31 /usr/libexec/udisks2/udisksd
peter       1859    1805  0 09:54 ?        00:00:03 /usr/libexec/gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor

I think there is a problem with the rights but I have no idea where to search.

Re: no mount of USB drives as normal user after upgrade

It might be different right now between sid proper and the freezing bullseye. I'm on Bullseye and upgrade test are ok so far, no change but I'm a week behind. I have noticed that the dependency chain may be incomplete. It seems gvfs and fuse configs vary by method, upgrades may or may not go to fuse3 for example. I'll keep an eye out..
