http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have F12 on my laptop and F10 on my HTPC. Both run a Athlon 64-class CPU and supports cpufreq. Both have the cpufreq applet running on GNOME and automatically logs in as a normal user. On F10 I can just go ahead and change the CPU frequency; on F12 it asks me for root. The dbus policy for it is identical across both computers, which are below: /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector.conf Code: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC           "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"           "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd"> <busconfig>   <!-- Only root can own the service -->   <policy user="root">     <allow own="org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector"/>     <allow send_interface="org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector"/>   </policy>   <policy context="default">     <allow send_interface="org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector"/>   </policy> </busconfig> Where else can I change to get the F10 behavior with F12 and not have it ask me for root every time?
