Subject: libpam-ck-connector: pam_ck_connector logs cannot determine display-device when non-interactive
Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2019 15:09:20 +0200

Package: libpam-ck-connector
Version: 1.2.1-4
Severity: normal

Good day to you.

When doing as root:
  echo 'su $USER ls'|at now
auth.log logs
  [...] su: pam_ck_connector(su:session): cannot determine display-device

I presume that is because there rightfully is none.

If this is not a more general bug, it should at least be possible to
silence the logging as it spams (at least my) log files.

Thank you for your effords!
