So you're running a minimal X environment, without support for current
widespread desktop technologies like polkit. It's a fine choice, but
it means that some desktop software that requires elevated permissions
(such as Tails Installer) won't be able to work properly, and that
you're on your own to figure out what's missing when it happens.

I'm now hesitating between closing this bug report, or documenting in
README.Debian the need for a complete desktop environment. Ulrike, and
other team-mates, any opinion?
