Asking for a password to view pdf files

Post by Diamyst »

Something called PolicyKit I think keeps asking for the password to view .pdf files. It is showing a password but I never gave it one. How do I undo this password thingy. I need to see the pdfs they are my T4s for incometax. And what is policykit and how did it get on my computer. I am running LinuxMint 14 cinnamon and am very new to Linux. Thanks

Hi - That's interesting!! From what i've found it could be related to network policy - and therfore you might find the access in that area?
