Plasma-Discover has no right to install updates

Postby ycom1andy » 23 Jan 2019 11:54

hi there, since some time I have the problem, that when updates notification come, and I then let them install with
Discover , I get the error message that " you dont have the right to install .... " , then I could take synaptic, though
it would be nice if there is a solution to the problem, synaptic itself has no update notification icon in the tray.

Has anyone a hint or solution ? Thanks in advance

Make sure you are in the sudo group: start KUser and double click your account and select the Groups tab. Check the sudo group and hit OK.
Reboot and you should be fine.

hi, thanks for the quick answer, i'm in the sudo group , still if I try to install via Discover it says "you have no authorisation to execute this operation"
could this be something with kwallet, since this is not active on my solydk ?

so looks my terminal output running an install via Discover:

Re: Plasma-Discover has no right to install updates

The only thing I can think about are the groups your account should belong to.
Mine:

Code: Select all

$groups
adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo audio video plugdev users netdev bluetooth fuse lpadmin powerdev scanner systemd-journal sambashare
Add your account to these groups and see what happens (I left out my account's user group of the same name).

If that doesn't change anything you could try to reinstall plasma-discover:

Code: Select all

apt update
apt purge plasma-discover*
apt install plasma-discover
but I doubt that would change anything.

many kde distros are having issues with plasma.discover, ...

... now it seems when I run "kdesu plasma-discover" things work out fine, hopefully, it stays that way , so I edited the app menu list and modified the entry plasma-discover accordingly, ... still the update notification app still does not know about this trick ; - (
