Description of problem:
KDE logout doesn't work
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
You can't, either with the lock/logout applet or the K menu
You are presented with the logout dialog.
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.
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.
rpm -q knetworkmanager
Please not that I'm not using (k)networkmanager at all.
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.
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.' :-)
Do you have gdm installed? If so, removing the config file means you're now
using gdm instead of kdm.
Yes, I do have gdm installed. It works with both kdm and gdm.
I've run yum update several times since I reported the problem.
It seems to have been corrected.
