Dolphin and mount partition

Mon Oct 26, 2009 1:02 pm
Hello all !!

I installed Debian Testing with KDE4.3.1, I have two fixed partition on the hard drive, I start Dolphin and when I click on the second partition to open it appears an error message: "org.freedesktop.hal.device.volume.permissiondenied, refusing to mount /dev/hda5 for uid=1000".
I don't want to use /etc/fstab so I read many docs about hal-dbus without success.

Do you know how can I solve it?
Thanks a lot.

You need to grant either the appropriate DBus or PolicyKit permissions so that HAL can be authorized to perform the mounting for your user ( it has the appropriate permissions itself, but will only do them if your user has the permission to )

Do you know what config files I must modify on debian?

For example in Kubuntu when I click in dolphin on the fixed partition there's a kdesu-window that request root password to gain authorization...
In Debian I don't know how to do this.

Thanks a lot.

Unfortunately I do not know the exact procedure for this. Are you sure it is a KDE Su window and not a PolicyKit window?

I solved it!
I upgraded package hal to the newer version in Debian Testing and now all it's ok with hal-dbus.
I can mount fixed partitions in Dolphin with a click.... very well.

Bye. :)
