Re: Polkit: prompt for root password

I have also tried creating /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/49-rootpw_global.rules with the same contents, as it seems like some other rules reside there. Still no result

Yours sincerely, Jayson Willson

Hello everybody!
I would like Polkit to prompt for _root_ password, not _user_ password.
On archwiki I found the following advice: create

and put the following into it:


/* Always authenticate Admins by prompting for the root
  * password, similar to the rootpw option in sudo
polkit.addAdminRule(function(action, subject) {
     return ["unix-user:root"];

However, it doesn't work on my Debian Stable system even after I reboot
the system. Polkit still prompts for user password. What should I do?
