Description Jonathan Kamens 2009-06-14 21:43:48 EDT
With current rawhide, I am no longer given a shutdown menu item on the GNOME panel menu.

I checked the policykit preferences and they appear to be correct, i.e., it says that the active console should be able to shut down / reboot.

Don't know what's up here or what to check to debug further.  Any pointers would be appreciated.

Should be fixed with the latest builds of ConsoleKit, gnome-panel and gnome-session.

Please reopen, if you see this problem with

Now I see the menu item but when I select it, it only lists Suspend and Hibernate as options -- Reboot and Shut down are not listed.

What does 

dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.CanRestart

return ?
Comment 4 Jonathan Kamens 2009-07-09 11:50:46 EDT
"boolean false"

When I run System > Preferences > Authorizations, I don't even see org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit in the hierarchy -- my power options are under org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.
Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2009-07-28 22:20:14 EDT
Now Restart and Shut Down buttons are present, but Suspend and Hibernate aren't?
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2009-08-26 01:35:25 EDT
I believe this is all straighened out by now. 
Please reopen if not.
