Well I followed the Linux - VAAPI: Nuc, Chromebox, HSW, IVB, Baytrail with Ubuntu 14.04 but have some issue, therefor I need some help

Error I have seen in kodi.log is:
07:49:38 T:139819946264512 ERROR: DBus: Error org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.PermissionDenied - Not Authorized

1. I do not get external USB devices & SDCard automatically mounted.
on the console with udisks --dump i see the USB device (ntfs) and Sdcard (ext4) the detection time, label and so on but not mounted nor mount path

when I manually mount for example the SDcard like:
sudo udisks --mount /dev/mmcblk0
Mounted /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/mmcblk0 at /media/ext-sd

drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Dec 18 06:14 ext-sd
it is now mounted and available in Kodi and I can browse and use it

2. when I manually mount for example the USB-drive (ntfs) like:
sudo udisks --mount /dev/sdd1
Mounted /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdd1 at /media/ext-kodi

drwx------ 1 root root 4096 Jan 4 17:12 ext-kodi
it is now mounted and visible in Kodi but I cant browse it -> Path not found or invalid
but on the Console I can browse through the USB-drive without a problem, therefore this seems to be an permission issue

sudo cat /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/custom-actions.pkla | pastebinit

any hint where to start to get my 2 issues it fixed ?

Edit: If you can't see it, you have "." (dot) in the udisks's freedesk.top which should be freedesktop

thanks fritsch - oh boy I dont know how often I have overseen this :-(

you made may day...
