Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 822735
Keyboard combination for logging off does not work.
Last modified: 2012-05-18 17:21:02 EDT
Description of problem:
According to the default setting in the Keyboard section of control-center, the key combination Ctrl-Alt-Del should log the user off. Instead, that key combination brings up a Power Off window (with options: Cancel Restart Power Off).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q control-center
Every time the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination is pressed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log on to the Gnome desktop manager.
2. Press the key combination Ctrl-Alt-Del.
Instead of logging off the user, a window prompting the user to Cancel/Restart/Power Off is displayed.
The user should be logged off or prompted with a window asking them whether they want to log off.
I used the Keyboard application and selected Shortcuts to change the keyboard shortcuts under the System settings. I changed the shortcut for "Log out" to Ctrl-Alt-o, in case Ctrl-Alt-Del was a special case. This new key combination had the same result, that is, it still prompted the user to select a Power Off option instead of a Log Off option.
