How to Fix “Authentication is required to create a color profile/managed device”

por | 18 mayo, 2023

The safest fix to get rid of these popups is to create a new configuration file in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/45-allow-colord.pkla.

sudo nano /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/45-allow-colord.pkla

Paste in the following:


[Allow Colord all Users]

Save and exit (press CTRL + X, press Y and then press ENTER)

This tells Polkit to continue without requiring the authentication prompt over RDP.

Now reboot Ubuntu and try logging in again over RDP / Windows Remote Desktop and the popups should be gone.
