Polkit agent for LXQt: the faster and lighter QT Desktop Environment


lxqt-policykit-agent [Currently No command line arguments]


This module handles policykit for LXQt. The authentication agent is used to make the user of a session prove that the user of the session really is the user (by authenticating as the user) or an administrative user (by authenticating as a administrator).

The LXQt modules are desktop independent tools and operate as daemons for the local user for desktop specific operations.

LXQt is an advanced, easy-to-use and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies, ships several core desktop components, all of which are optional:

* Panel
* Desktop
* Application launcher
* Settings center
* Session handler
* Polkit handler (this)
* Display manager handler

These components perform similar actions to those available in other desktop environments and their name is self-descriptive. They are usually not launched by hand but automatically, when choosing a LXQt session in the Display Manager.


The module detected on shares privilege escalation and maintain a security dialog that ask for the user's key need for action.


The module is only shown in LXQt desktop, but one can create an autostart action for other desktop environments.
