Unlock greyed out in Ubuntu when using nx(nomachine)

leave a comment »

I was trying to use the “services-admin” application over a nxserver (nomachine) connection and the Unlock button was greyed out. This was the same for the “Users and Groups” button as well.
Solution was to run “polkit-gnome-authorization” and select org->freedesktop->systemtoolsbackends … and setting “Anyone” and “Console” to “Admin Authentication”.
