Description Martin Meredith 2015-01-16 11:56:51 UTC
When combined with pam_ldap, to login to a centralised server, the GUI components of policykit fail, this means that the UI cannot shutdown, cannot mount disks, install packages, etc (Xubuntu 14.04).

I can provide any further info, but I don't know what you require to research this issue :).

pkexec from a terminal works fine.

This has been tracked down to being an issue with libpam-ldap
