Fedora :: Shutdown/Restart/Logout Buttons Do Not Work After An Update?

Mar 8, 2010

I am running Fedora 12 with KDE on an Acer Aspire One netbook.

A recent update has caused the KDE shutdown/restart/logout buttons (found for example through the Fedora -> Leave menu or by pressing the power off switch)to stop working. I am having to shutdown using shutdown -P now command.

So I have the following questions:

a) Has anyone else had this issue and knows a workaround/fix?

b) Does anyone know what package these belong to so I can try an older version?

c) Does anyone know where this package writes its logs, or if I need to install anything for it to do so so I can have a look?

d) Does anyone know the command-line interface to these commands - that may give me either a more gentle workaround than shutdown -P now, or some insight into why the command is no longer working.

Ubuntu :: Shutdown - Restart And Logout Buttons Will Not Do Anything

Nov 5, 2010

On two of my machines that have Ubuntu 10.10 on them, I cannot shut down, restart or log out by pressing the "power button" on Gnome panel. I can not even do "Alt + Ctl + Backspace" either. However, I can shutdown or restart by: Quote: sudo shutdown -h now sudo shutdown -r now

Ubuntu Security :: Installed Prixfixe Through Software Center To Edit The Menus - Restart/shutdown Buttons Didn't Work?

Jan 21, 2011

I run apache on a non standard port(82).I just installed unity to play around with it and while I was playing with it I installed prixfixe through software center to edit the menus.While prixfixe was installing my computer was acting very slow which was odd, but not completely unusual.During this time I ran ps aux which showed that my apache server was taking up most of the processing power.I was about to stop my web server,but I waited just in case the web server was updating a few things (I run ampache).

My computer finished installing the software and then I ran some command with sudo (I can't remember what the command was), but it threw back some message saying "setid blabla". I restarted my computer and when I got to my gdm my normal user account did not show up. There were no accounts and the restart/shutdown buttons didn't work.Now I'm running on a livecd and checking out my apache access logs, apache error logs,and kernel logs,but nothing looks out of place..

Fedora :: Logout And Cancel Are Only Options In KDE Menu / Lost Ability To Do A Shutdown Or Restart?

Dec 16, 2008

I have lost my ability in KDE Menus to do a shutdown or restart. My only option is to logoff or cancel. This started occurring about 2 weeks ago, possibly 2 KDE workspace updates ago. I have been assuming it would get fixed with an update but so far it has not.

I am running Fedora 10 x86_64, kernel =, and the KDE version is:

kde-filesystem.noarch 4-20.fc10 installed
kde-settings.noarch 4.1-4.20081031svn.fc10 installed
kde-settings-kdm.noarch 4.1-4.20081031svn.fc10 installed

I have 3 different systems all running the same OS and KDE versions and it is happening on all 3 systems. All systems have the "Offer Shutdown Options" selected in Session Manager. I have even turned this option off, rebooted, and then back on to try to jumpstart it but that did not work.

Additionally, I have tried deleting the contents of the /tmp directory while in single-user mode and also the .kde under my home directory. This made no difference.

Another symptom I am noticing is that any desktop widgets that I create all get moved to the upper left-hand corner of the display whenever I reboot and log back in. Any extra shortcut widgets that I add to the panel are also gone the next time I log in.

Again, these same symptoms are occurring on 3 different machines.

These symptom do not occur after a fresh install of FC 10. It is breaking during one of the yum updates but I have not narrowed it down yet as to which update is causing this to happen.

Ubuntu :: User Can't Shutdown, Logout, Restart?

Sep 29, 2010

My normal day to day user can't shutdown, restart, logout, etc...It just doesn't do anything at all when I try. This wasn't the case three days ago, just fresh installed and seeing the same problem (so it must be some setting saved in my home folder which wasn't wiped).

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Suspend/restart/shutdown/logout Often Freezes?

Oct 21, 2010

Lenovo X200 notebook, 64bit maverick, external monitor connected through DisplayPort, fast SSD drive, encrypted homeI'm almost positive these issues were non existent after installing 10.10RC, but I'm not 100% sure. Maybe I will install it again to check it outAnyway, when I try to suspend/restart/shutdown/logout the system often freezes, showing the console with the similar output:I know this guy is running Ubuntu in VM, but I have very similar ouput, except the last usplash line.But the first line I always have in the output is the infamousQuote:GLIb-WARNING **: getpwid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)On a very rare occassion, the system hanged while booting (showing the above glib line as well. But that's quite rare, so I'm not that concerned.

Now, sometimes it does respond to ctrl+alt+delete after freezing, and after I hit this combination, another line appears (from memory):Quote:Init: rc main process killed by TERM signalChecking for running unattended-upgradesBut that's it, I cannot do anything else, only hard reset, which is especially painful when I suspend in the middle of work...There is no interesting information in the logs - a few messages in the kern.log, but nothing I think would show the culpritEDIT: other than that, the machine is very stable and I have no issues with it. It also worked perfectly on lucid 32bit.

OpenSUSE Install :: Shutdown / Restart Screen Distortion With Logout Desktop Effect

Mar 28, 2011

When trying to "Leave" the system (either via the small button on the lower right of the taskbar or by right clicking on the Desktop and selecting "Leave") the logout / shutdown / restart screen comes up. I have the "Logout" desktop effect activated, which is supposed to desaturated the background when the Leave screen appears. However, instead of simply greying out the background, the image on the desktop and the rest of the screen also gets slightly distorted, with seemingly random distortion effects cropping up all over the place (e.g. horizontal lines or large blurs).

These distortions are different every time the Leave screen comes up. The Leave screen itself is displayed fine, and apart from the dodgy background I have no other issues with the whole process (the system shuts down or restarts properly according to my choice). I am using the Radeon drivers, and all other desktop effects I have on (Magic lamb, cover switch, present windows, etc) work fine and without a hitch. It's only the Logout effect that seems to glitch. Are the distortions intentionally created by the effect in order to emphasize the focus on the Leave screen?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Unable To Logout Or Shutdown From KDE?

Jan 31, 2011

For some reason in the last few days I can no longer logout of KDE, nor will it let me shutdown the system. The only way out is to Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and then shutdown from there. Weird thing is other users can. For me the logout box just disappears and I carry on working or if effects are enabled, the screen blurs and I carry on working. After this the logout box doesn't come back up until I have restarted X (logged out).

I have tried disabling the desktop effects to no availe and I have looked in the messages / kdm logs. So far the only thing I can find is in KDM.log

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Internal error: Could not resolve keysym XF86TouchpadOn
> Internal error: Could not resolve keysym XF86TouchpadOff

I have no idea if this is at all relevant but there are several threads from Google relating to this and GDM, although no cures as far as I can tell.

I would rather not delete my ~/.kde folder again if at all possible as it takes ages to reset everything back to normal.

Do I need to rebuild the system?

Fedora :: Restart/logout From Fedora 15 Instantly?

May 29, 2011

When I try to logout, it tells that you "will be automaticallyed out after 60 seconds"..and there are two buttons there. one is to "cancel", one is to "logout". Even if I press the logout button, it will logout after only a minute. My question is that how to logout instantaneously (without waiting for 60 seconds).The same problem happens when i try to poweroff or restart the computer. It will do it only after 60 seconds. Who in the world would like a machine which does things according to its wish, rather than execute your command?

Fedora :: Shutdown And Restart Icons Have Disappeared?

Feb 7, 2010

I'm running Fedora 11 with KDE desktop. Yesterday I installed several updates, including a kernel update. Now the Shutdown and Restart icons have disappeared from the Leave menu, which only contains the icons for "Logout", "Lock", "Switch User", "Suspend to Ram" and "Suspend to Disk". I had "Shutdown" and "Restart" icons in my Favorites menu, but when selected they open a "Logout" dialogue.

I can Shutdown and Restart from the command line, but would like to restore the capability to do it from the icons. Has anyone else experienced this and found a fix?

Fedora :: 14 Runlevel 3, Logout From X Does't Work?

Dec 24, 2010

i performed an upgrade from fedora 13 to 14 on my test fedora virtual machine (vmware player 3) and i have this incredible problem: I normally boot in runlevel 3 and i start X only when needed with the startx command.When I want to exit from the X environment I use the "log out <username>" command on the System menu (gnome is the desktop manager). After upgrading to fedora 14 and applying all the available upgrade, this won't work anymore! I'm able to start the X environment but when I try to logout the window/desktop manager got killed but X remain active, the background image is visible on the screen, no mouse or keyboard interaction is possible.

The system is stiil alive, i can login through ssh, but i was not able to do anything. manually switching the runlevel from 3 to 5 and viceversa with telinit doesn't solve the situation: switching to runlevel 5 cause the login screen to be visualized and i' can login in the gnome desktop environment but when i logout o when a try to switch to runlevel 3 I always obtain the same result: X remain active and unusable, it's impossible to go back to a text console. what can i do ? any of you has experienced a similar issue ?

Fedora :: Removing Shutdown/Restart In Pull Down Menu And Login In 13?

Sep 20, 2010

I have a workstation with Fedora 13. This workstation is used for very long remote processes. Recently it has been shutdown accidentally by a user and has caused the loss of some of these processes. As such, for precautionary reasons, I have decided to remove these options from all our workstations so that only the super user can initiate reboots or shutdowns.

In previous versions I was able to do this by using gdmsetup and unchecking the Show Action Menu option. This also added the SystemMenu=false flag under [greeter] in the /etc/gdm/custom.conf file. This was under RedHat EL5. However in Fedora 13 neither of these methods work. Gdmsetup no longer exists and adding that flag to the custom.conf file does not work. I rebooted after editting the file and the shutdown option still appears at login.

Debian Multimedia :: Kde 4.4.5 Can't Shutdown Or Logout?

Aug 5, 2010

I just installed debian unstable with kde 4.4.5 on a new hp desktop. Just about everything is working fine except when I try to logout or shutdown by right clicking on the desktop. No matter which option I choose--logout, shutdown, or restart--the screen goes black and nothing happens. I'm forced to do a hard shutdown or use alt-SysRq-B to reboot. I can reboot or shutdown using the command line when logged into kde.

Ubuntu :: Unity Interface Disappears On Logout / Restart

May 23, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04, and I like the Unity interface. But every time I logout and back in (or restart) it starts in Classic mode.
- If I go to Compiz, it shows that Unity is enabled.
- When I login, it shows that the Unity interface is selected.
- If I run
unity --replace
in the terminal Unity will run, but then if I close the terminal, it will (sometimes)shut Unity back down.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Shutdown/Logout/Reset Through Graphic Interface?

May 9, 2011

working on KDE, I cannot shutdown, reset, logout or switch users through graphical interface (you know, bit blue button, 'leave' tab and all these buttons).I've googled the problem, and here's what I have found:[URL]Guys on the Arch forum related the problem to the OGG files and phonon-xine - indeed, I cannot play OGG files anymore.I tried to install phonon-vlc, but the package is not in any of my repositories. I tried to remove libqt4-phonon, but it would also remove half of the system, which isn't the best idea. Someone else suggested to install speex, but it's already installed on my Kubuntu.I'm out of ideas, and I'm not really sure how to reinstall xine and phonon without deleting half of the system like this:

The following packages will be REMOVED:

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Desktop Icons Disappear After Logout, Not Restart?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a Lucid installation which I've imaged and pushed to several computers on the network at my office. The system authenticates network users with Active Directory using Kerberos, and mounts NFS shares from a Lucid server downstairs using pam_mount. It all works quite smoothly most of the time, but I get desktop icons in Gnome only on the first login. If I log out, then log in as a different user (local or network, it doesn't matter), the desktop icons are all gone. Everything else looks normal, and I can open a Nautilus window and view any location on the hard drive just as expected. If I use the run dialog or a terminal window to executekillall nautilus the icons are restored. This works whether any instance of a file browser window is open or not.

I have noticed similar, but far less consistent, behavior with gnome-panel. Every once in a while the panels will fail to appear when I log in, but I can restore them withkillall gnome-panel When I run either command, everything works fine until the next login. If I reboot the machine, I get everything back again for one login. Then the desktop icons will disappear, and I have to kill Nautilus and let it restart in order to get them back. I expect I'm missing something important here, but I don't know where to look next.
