Thread: Problems with shutdown/reboot from GUI

  1. #1

    Default Problems with shutdown/reboot from GUI

    Hi,

    I have a problem rebooting or shutting down my computer. The buttons do not work, nothing happens. If I type 'sudo /sbin/halt' into the console, the system shuts down as it is supposed to. In System Settings/Login Manager, the same command is specified (without sudo though). I am using KDE4 unstable.

    Any help would be appreciated, like which log to check; I did not see anything relevant in /var/log/messages or dmesg.

    Also, please excuse me if I posted in the wrong forum

    I am using KDE4 unstable.
    Why?
    If you can't find a solution to this yourself, you have to ask Why?

    What version of openSUSE?

    No, I will not do that - I enjoy trying out new things, I report bugs and suggest features, I even coded some minor stuff myself and it got accepted into KDE. I would rather shut the computer down through the console or via the button on the case if there is no other alternative.

    Thank you, but no.. any other suggestions?

    Check the reported bugs in kde.
    I'm going to move this to pre-release/beta if that's OK.

    Could be a QT issue - Maybe?

    Sure.

    I tried checking the bug reports, but there's a lot of stuff there, plus it doesn't seem to affect every installation as my other computer is fine, so I thought maybe someone with the same distribution might have had a similar issue.

    Anyway, if someone else has a clue, I'd appreciate it.

    Here is the output of the command. Looking at it like this, it seems a mess, so many similar repositories with the same priority

    Personally I would experiment with disabling QT 45 and roll QT back to whatever is in Factory
