Description Wolfgang Ulbrich 2013-06-12 07:10:10 EDT
Description of problem:
After a fresh installed MATE desktop from f19 netiso TC2, shutdown and restart options didn't displayed in lightdm panel menu.
In /var/log/lightdm/x-0-greeter.log i found this warning.

** (process:468): WARNING **: Failed to open CK session: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files

Installing consolekit-x11 fix the issue, after a restart the menu items displayed well are working.

Also 'suspend on lid close' didn't work without consolekit, but i'm not shure if this lightdm related.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install MATE Desktop from netinstall iso f19 TC2 and reboot.
2. try to to restart/shutdown from lightdm panel menu.

Actual results:
no shutdown/restart option in panel menu

Expected results:
shutdown/restart option in panel menu

I'm seeing this also on a TC6 xfce spin install.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2013-06-20 14:37:43 EDT
I can confirm now:

* selinux isnt it (enabled/permissive doesn't matter)
* polkit.rules seems correct

Now, testing different bindings (gtk/gobject vs qt/kde).

* gtk/gobject doesnt work
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2013-06-20 14:41:04 EDT
A ha!

* lightdm-kde works

OK, time to re-review the systemd-login patch to lightdm-gobject bindings
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2013-06-20 14:50:15 EDT
For example, working -qt bindings code example:

if ( d->login1Interface->isValid() ) {
  QDBusReply<QString> reply1 = d->login1Interface->call("CanReboot");
  if (reply1.isValid()) {
    return (reply1.value()=="yes");

-gobject bindings equivalent:

* CanReboot, CanPowerOff returns a string "yes", "no", or "challenge", not a boolean as ConsoleKit
if (g_variant_is_of_type (result, G_VARIANT_TYPE ("(s)"))) {
    g_variant_get (result, "(b)", str_result);
    if(g_strcmp0(str_result,true_result) == 0) {
        function_result = TRUE;

Now, I get to wrap by brain around how this g_variant stuff is supposed to work again. :-/
Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2013-06-20 16:25:25 EDT
lightdm-1.6.0-10.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2013-06-20 16:41:24 EDT
nominating blocker, xfce/mate spins won't be able to shutdown/restart from login screen without this fix.
Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2013-06-21 15:16:22 EDT
+1 FE (since it's non blocking desktops, I don't think it can really be a blocker)

Comment 17 Steve Rogerson 2013-08-08 04:20:59 EDT
I still get this problem:
kernel 3.10.4-300.fc19.x86_64
$ rpm -q lightdm

Suspend works with gnome, not with MATE

lenovo G570 laptop.

Fn-F1: beeps and (sometimes) produces a window with "Failure reported as: Cannot suspend"

No sleep/hibernate options in the shutdown window. Same with and without ConsoleKit-x11.

selinux not enforced. Nothing in any log looks helpful.
Comment 18 Steven Franzen 2014-03-13 09:15:38 EDT
I also still have this issue on Fedora 20 with KDE and lightdm 1.8.5-2. It must still be something to do with permissions, as the buttons are present and working when I run $ lightdm -d --test-mode.
Comment 19 Rex Dieter 2014-03-13 09:34:18 EDT
Steven, please file a separate bug, yours is likely different
