Connection activation failed

Post in this forum for problems at boot time, if there was no problem for burning the disc. For example can't find the CD, or strange errors when you press enter at the very first prompt.

Connection activation failed

Post by topdog » 06 Feb 2015, 05:49

I used to be able to boot off my USBstick and get internet (tethered to a MOTO G).
But now, although the phone says I'm tethered, I get the following when
I choose what works in Ubuntu (connection 2 or something):

(32) Error initializing authority: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: Success

Also, as Systemrescuecd comes up it says
xmodmap: unable to open display ''

before I enter xstartx / wizard. Anything sound familiar?
