{Solved] Mate and permissions problem

Just installed on a PC: Jessie cli, upgraded to ASCII, then installed xorg, lightdm and Mate desktop.

Now I have got a few issues with permissions.

1.) As user when I try to shutdown/reboot the PC the user is logged off, I end up in lightdm. The shutdown/reboot icons in lightdm are also dimmed. I have to go through a root terminal.
2.) When I connect a USB stick I get a message in Mate that I am not authorised to mount the stick. When I mount the stick in a root terminal, its also shown on the desktop, looks like I can use it as usual.
3.) Synaptic does not start from the menu. Does in the root terminal.
4.) Have installed gnome-system-tools. I can call up users-admin and display one or the other property, but I have no access to the advanced settings.

One or the other permission must be off. Where do I need to tweak?

Thanks, rolfie
