ConsoleKit doesn't give at_console rights within an LXC container

Bug Description


I'm running an LXC container with lightdm and VNC. LightDM manages the XVNC server and has the unity-greeter running properly in that environment. However, nm-applet (and probably other elements) are unable to access NM because they are not consider "at_console".

To avoid the issue, and have nm-applet work properly, I have added specific rights in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.conf to give the same permissions to the lightdm user. This is wrong of course, and I'm looking for a proper fix for that.

Note: this bug seems to be a consolekit one, but may be an LXC configuration issue.

Changed in consolekit (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
