Shutdown from KDE kickoff menu does not work
Last modified: 2010-05-26 16:08:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Nothing happens when I select Leave-> and one of Logoff, Restart or Shutdown from the Kickoff menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase.i686 6:4.4.2-1.fc13 @fedora
kdebase-libs.i686 6:4.4.2-1.fc13 @fedora
kdebase-runtime.i686 4.4.2-2.fc13 @fedora
kdebase-runtime-libs.i686 4.4.2-2.fc13 @fedora
xorg-x11-server-Xorg.i686 1.8.0-7.fc13 @updates-testing
xorg-x11-server-common.i686 1.8.0-7.fc13 @updates-testing
The system was fully updated as of 1920 (UTC+1) 22 April 2010 bar some broken gnome icon dependencies.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select Leave-> and one of Logoff, Restart or Shutdown from the Kickoff menu.
Nothing happens. I can continue to use the desktop, launch new applications etc.
Confirmation dialogue followed by shutdown, restart or logoff happening.
No output from a tail of /var/log/messages and .xsession-errors when performing menu actions.
System is an Asus eeePC1000. External Logitech mouse.
Behaviour for Sleep, Hibernate etc. will be reported in next comment. Started this report before I realised I hadn't tested them - don't want to lose the report if they work, :)
The Lock, Switch user, Sleep and Hibernate options are all functioning properly.
From a graphical login as root (I use KDM), the logout option works, I repeated this (as that was the first time I had performed a graphical login as root) a couple of time (including reboots) and had no problem with that account.
On my default account, I once managed to get the logout confirmation dialogue by confirming the logout action caused the dialogue to disappear and nothing else happened. Otherwise normal desktop operation was possible.
I have corrected the error by dint of deleting the account's .kde directory.
Unfortunately, this means that I can no longer provide any further information regarding the error.
I suggest closing the bug report although I think there is an underlying issue (e.g. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=581780 looks very similar) but at the moment I can no longer reproduce it. I assume that the issue can be re-opened if the problem re-occurs?
Yes, it can be reopened if somebody can reproduce it.
