Do you have "Automatically save session on logout" checked in

If so, could be a dupe of bug 243761.

Do the packages in


fix the problem for you?
Comment 2 Nikos Charonitakis 2007-09-13 13:33:37 EDT
no, i dont have "Automatically save session on logout". I disabled also desktop
effects but problem remains. Can i do something to check what is happening?
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-09-13 15:35:47 EDT
Can you switch VTs?  Does the mouse still move?

what processes are still running?

can you ssh in from another machine?
Comment 4 Nikos Charonitakis 2007-09-13 19:10:15 EDT
Only mouse pointer can be moved. But i have more info:

This is a desktop-effects-enable problem. When i tried to disable them the
laptop freezes the same way. Also from another account (same laptop) that has
desktop-effects-disabled there is not such a problem: i can logout and shutdown
My laptop comes with nvidia graphics so i use the binary driver...
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-09-14 09:28:35 EDT
okay, i'm going to move this to compiz, then.
Comment 6 Nikos Charonitakis 2007-11-20 17:44:11 EST
