Description Philip Ashmore 2007-11-11 19:03:14 UTC
Description of problem:
KDE logout doesn't work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE 3.5.8-7.fc8

How reproducible:
Every time I try it in this session! I also think I remember it happening with
an F8 test live image

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to log out.

Actual results:
You can't, either with the lock/logout applet or the K menu

Expected results:
You are presented with the logout dialog.

Additional info:
This was after entering several bug reports, interrupted by a break lasting
about an hour during which the screen was locked.

We issued a 0-day update to address a similar issue, knetworkmanger-0.2-0.7.fc8,
please update, and confirm whether or not that helps you.

Comment 2 David Kovalsky 2007-12-07 15:22:36 UTC
I'm using kdebase-3.5.8-5.fc8 ATM with the latest & greatest updates updates
there are for F8.

I've also been experiencing this issue. As a temporary solution I had 
in my /etc/syscondif/desktop file and everything worked as expected. Today I
tried removing the config file and everything seems to work correctly.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-12-07 15:29:52 UTC
rpm -q knetworkmanager 

Comment 4 David Kovalsky 2007-12-07 16:10:11 UTC

Please not that I'm not using (k)networkmanager at all.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-12-07 16:17:42 UTC
If it's installed, it (nm-applet) still tries to run.  If you're not using it,
rpm -e knetworkmanager NetworkManger-gnome
and see if that helps.

Comment 6 David Kovalsky 2007-12-07 16:24:56 UTC
I probably didn't phrase it right - it works for me, everything is fine and
working as expected. That's what I meant by 'Today I
tried removing the config file and everything seems to work correctly.' :-)

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2007-12-07 17:07:46 UTC
Do you have gdm installed?  If so, removing the config file means you're now
using gdm instead of kdm.

Comment 8 David Kovalsky 2007-12-07 17:12:49 UTC
Yes, I do have gdm installed. It works with both kdm and gdm. 

Comment 9 Philip Ashmore 2007-12-10 06:20:59 UTC
I've run yum update several times since I reported the problem.
It seems to have been corrected.
