[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package: libpolkit-backend-1-0
Version: 0.105-18+devuan2.11

When performing a minimal install, followed by an installation of most desktop environments, libpolkit-backend-1-0-consolekit is prevents escalated privilege desktop functionality.  This includes mounting disks, setting power options, setting session options, and shutdown/reboot.

The exact issue is discussed here:

By switching to libpolkit-backend-1-0-elogind, the desktop environment becomes fully functional.
