Description of problem:
Gdm with the BlueCurve theme don't allow user to reboot.
Themes "Circles" and "Happy GNOME" do.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If KDE is selected as the desktop, attempting to reboot the computer throws the
user into a text-mode login shell instead of rebooting. You have to login as
root and run 'shutdown -r now' to reboot the machine. The desktop should allow
you to reboot as advertised.
Bob, I think your report is a different bug; if I'm understanding the original
report here it's about having a reboot button on the login screen.
It's important to open a new bug for each independent issue, or
things get lost, as each bug needs to be separately tracked.
With redhat-artwork 0.72-1 I do have a reboot button, so not sure what's up.
I also get a reboot button w/ the latest redhat-artwork, and i've always seen it
Does anyone still see this?
No problem here (redhat-artwork-0.81-1).
I think, It's a "NOTABUG" bug. The layout between "Happy GNOME" and "BlueCurve"
is differente. I usually use "Happy GNOME" theme (buttom "action" then i have
the choice between reboot or halt). This create some confusion. Sorry.
