Description PF4Public 2020-06-19 14:13:54 UTC
Starting networkmanager with system as usual results in polkit rules not being applied.
Trying changing connectivity results in errors like `result="fail" reason="Not authorized to control networking."`
Restarting networkmanager fixes the issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Starting a system
2. Trying to change connectivity after Desktop Environment started
Actual Results:  
"Not authorized to control networking."

Expected Results:  
Networking changes applied

This seems to be a result of a spurious wrong permissions on /usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
Comment 2 PF4Public 2020-06-22 22:41:23 UTC
Happend again, but this time permissions were set as they should be, so that this issue is not related to them.
