Dolphin not mounting NTFS/HFS drives

So Dolphin in KDE sees my drives fine, but doesn’t allow me to mount with the error:

org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: auth_admin_keep_always <--(action, result)

Fixing this is easy though, edit /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/ and change the value “auth_admin_keep_always” under mount-fixed to “yes”

Dolphin doenst seem to support Authentication, otherwise the policy setting is supposed to bring up a password dialog asking for root password
