Bug Description

I am working mostly over XRDP with my Xubuntu 14.04.
I have massive authorizations problems.
Apparently the policy-kit does not function over a XRDP remote desktop connection.

The software center claims that I haven't gt any authorizations, Synaptic does not start at all...

I would think some parts of the policy kit (tried to install lxpolicy as well without success) wont work over XRDP.
Directly at the computer desktop, it works perfectly.

Have I forgotten something or it is a bug?

Have you got a hint, a workaround?

Thank you a lot.
