After pcscd upgrade sssd user no longer authorized to access

Setup of GnuPG with pcscd no longer works on a sssd user

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GnuPG#Always_use_pcscd

[2023-04-02T19:52:51+0200] [ALPM] upgraded pcsclite (1.9.9-2 -> 1.9.9-3)
[2023-04-02T19:53:45+0200] [ALPM] upgraded pcsc-tools (1.6.0-1 -> 1.6.2-1)

Getting this error

Apr 03 15:23:38 <host> systemd[1]: Started PC/SC Smart Card Daemon.
Apr 03 15:23:38 <host> pcscd[18957]: 00000000 auth.c:119:IsClientAuthorized() Error in authorization: GDBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._g_2dfile_2derror_2dquark.Code4: Failed to

The process(6196) not authorized is the scdaemon run by the sssd user with the id 30000


Tried adding polkit rules as mentioned in https://github.com/SSSD/sssd/issues/5087 since it has the same error message but it does not help.

Anyone has a clue?

Re: After pcscd upgrade sssd user no longer authorized to access

Hey there. I think I figured it out. This seems to be because the arch packagess enabled the polkit support flag in the latest build which enables certain policies/rules. However, the pcsc package seems to be using GDBus to check for authority explicitly and since on my system I'm using kde polkit the authorization fails. This happens whether or not a correctly permissive rules for access is created. There are two solutions. To downgrade pcsclite to .9-2 or to compile the most recent one yourself without the --enable-polkit flag. I'm not an expert in how the auth check is made so I have no idea what bug report to file or where.
