Bug Description

Hi, I'm using ubuntu 8.04. I have strange problem with [B]gnome-system-tools[/B] that started yesterday. I installed VirtualBox and tried to add my user to "vboxusers" group, using users-admin tool. So i run it and unlocked it, but there wasn't any group on the list. So I run [B]polkit-gnome-authorization[/B] and gave myself rights to change user configuration "org.freedesktop.systemtoolsbackends.self.set". If I recall corectly, after that, I couldn't run [B]users-admin[/B] tool at all, so i Revoked this rights and than I realized I can't run any tool from [B]gnome-system-tools[/B]. I couldn't mount any removable drives also although it was working earlier and i didn't change anything with this. Eventually I solved problem with mounting somehow, but I still can't run gnome-system-tools although I have authorizations in policykit for my user for "org.freedesktop.systemtoolsbackends.self.set" and "org.freedesktop.systemtoolsbackends.set"

Errors:

And all of the above give me error window that I attached.

Of course I can do all the things these tools should do, ie. from terminal.

Thanks for your report, it seems that you broken your configuration somehow, that's not a gnome-system-tools bug, for further questions you can use the support tracker, thanks.

Changed in gnome-system-tools:
status: New → Invalid

I have the same problem, i cant use open users-admin, shares-admin, network-admin, services-admin or time-admin. I upgraded from gutsy from the update manager. The screenshot shows up the error messages.

I didnt make a strange configuration in gusty or hardy.

Sorry for my bad english
