[Solved] unable to mount harddisk partition or flash drive

After recent updates to gnome 3.4.2,i am unable to mount  harddisk partition or flash drive .I have 2 year old arch installation with gnome.

When i click on partitions in nautilus,it says "Unable to mount program files \n Not authorized to perform operation"

Problem is not only while mounting partitions.
Wherever we need authorization .Like changing date and time ,changing user accounts using gnome UI etc.The unlock button is greyed out permanently.

even i am not able to shutdown using gnome menus. it just log me out only ,do not restart or shutdown.Though i can shutdown using shutdown command on commandline.
i run gnome using daemon method. not through xinitrc .

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25031?p … ekit#close

I found a similar discussion in this bug. But since, i do not use xinitrc, it is unlikely they will help me.

Can someone be kind enough to help me on this?

Thanks in advance.

After shift to systemd fully from initscript,i no longer face any such problem.

I do not face this problem for quite sometime.However,i forgot to update in this thread.
