On resume from suspend, elementary OS prompts: "Authentication is required to refresh system resources" - but my password doesn't get accepted by this dialog, just had to press cancel. Anyone having experience with this? Password works fine in terminal, though.

  • Searching on "Authentication is required" gave: elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/7447/… Seems like a duplicate question? Jan 19 '18 at 9:53
  • No, it is not actually, for in this case the password doesn't work and it's the system password of course.. The only workaround is to cancel the dialog.

  • Same here, for all users on a desktop. Only workaround is to cancel the dialog. Jun 1 '18 at 16:06
