Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505971
shutdown, reboot gone from GNOME panel menu
Last modified: 2009-08-26 01:35:25 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.
dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.CanRestart
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.
Now Restart and Shut Down buttons are present, but Suspend and Hibernate aren't?
I believe this is all straighened out by now.
Please reopen if not.
