kde kmenu Logout item does absolutely nothing
Last modified: 2009-09-07 22:07:06 EDT
Description of problem:
If I go into kmenu and go to the Leave tab and click the Logout entry absolutely nothing happens. I've clicked it at least twice now in the last 10 minutes and yet I have not had my session ended. Nothing shows up out of the ordinary on top.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-workspace-4.2.0-8.fc10.x86_64 (and i386)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go into kmenu
2. go into the Leave tab
3. click Logout
My session ends and I'm back at gdm
If I add the Lock/Logout widgets to my panel they do seem to work.
Can you reproduce using kdm?
ie, either remove gdm and/or edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop to contain:
For what its worth, just double-checked checked, works ok on my boxen using either gdm or kdm.
wonder what's going wrong... ?
did you mean DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE? the other didn't seem to do anything
anyway, using kdm seems to have had no effect, I've clicked the Logout menu item several times this session and nothing is happening :-(
Going out on a limb I would almost say it is something specific to however I configure KDE as it happens on both my home and work systems. And I don't think it started until F8 -> F10 and possibly not until the 4.2 upgrade or so.
yes DISPLAYMANAGER (sorry).
rpm -q kdelibs kdebase-workspace
what video hw/driver do you use?
Any selinux-related warnings/denials?
[long@griffon wnkmu4iv.slt]$ rpm -q kdelibs kdebase-workspace
On this machine I'm using the radeon driver. At home I use the binary nvidia driver.
I do not appear to be getting any selinux messages during this.
Is this still an issue?
Yes, it still seems to do nothing for me. Using:
Sorry no one but you can reproduce.
Is desktop effects enabled? (If so, please try disabling, and logout/login and/or reboot)
Alt-F2 (krunner): logout
That figures :-)
Desktop effects were not enabled to begin with.
krunner -> logout did in fact end my session and log me out (although ksmserver refused to start and booted me out of my following KDE session, does that offer any hints?)
Seems no one here can reproduce this behaviour. I would suggest checking upstream at http://bugs.kde.org to see if anyone else has reported this. If not please file an upstream report and update this report with the upstream information.
Some new info, if I go into System Settings -> Session Manager and check "Confirm logout" then the K menu logout button works normally for me (it asks for confirmation, then logs me out).
Since no one else could reproduce and you now have it working going to close this.
