No authentication agent

Hi there,

I use Etcher as my ISO to USB burn tool and it comes with an app image.

When I start the process it usual ask for your sudo password, but in Calculate I get the error message “No Authentication Agent”.

I sorted that out somewhere else, but can not remember how I did it.

Thanks for all your help.

Did that helped?

how do you execute a app image in terminal?

AppImage “works” as any other binary file. Just chmod +x this or right click on that file and check executable box, then run

sudo <path_to_etcher>

or if sudo is not configured and you just wan’t to run this damn thing, just login as root with su, and launch it.
Also you can use su -c “<path_to_etcher>” but imo login as root is faster.

I ran it as sudo and it stands still at start, that is where it usual asks for the root/sudo password.

Sadly, not working, just yet.

What Calculate Linux (KDE, Xfce) do you use?

sorry for the late reply, I use XFCE.

you must have a polkit agent i think.

Try to install gnome-extra/polkit-gnome (i don’t know if there are a lot of dependancies…)
