I have this really weird issue with my raspberry pi that I have experienced once before while using bodhi linux. I rebooted the machine and all the sudden its like the privileges or the groups the main login was assigned to just took a vacation. I can only click logout, where before you could select reboot, shutdown, etc..


You can't sudo pcmanfm or else it says "Client not authorized to connect


However if you type xhost + , then you can type sudo pcmanfm and everything works. If anyone really needs a reason why i use the elevated privilege, its so I can modify my mumble server.ini file.


Any idea how to return the primary login back to its normal privilege levels?
