    Question Gnome Shutdown to Login?

    I have both kde and gnome on my computers. All were kde installs originally and gnome added later.
    When I am logged in under gnome, Shutdown takes me back to the login screen. From where I can Shutdown.
    But in kde, Shutdown does just that.

    The same will happen with kde when you use gdm as windowmanager.
    So use gdm for gnome and kdm for kde when you want that functionality.

    Chris, you are correct. I had actually figured it out but thanks for that confirmation.

    Which would leave the problem unsolved or not ? As Chris says, solving it for a GNOME session, would cause the phenomenon on the next KDE session? Weird ..

    My problem is solved.
    I switched to Gnome session and window manager as I am currently using Gnome. Made sense when I thought about it.

    But I know what you are getting at and I don't intent to try and make it work the wrong way around so to speak.

    I've checked and guess what: the other way around too does not work the way it should. I googled around a bit, and found that this is an ongoing issue, my search always get to some "Use Gnome? Use GDM !!, Use KDE? Use KDM !!" answer. ATM one can only "solve" this on the used DE's side.

    It's not bothering me either though.

    This problem is still around in 11.3. I am using KDE, and I just installed GNOME, and it will log me out instead of shutting down. Is this a bug?
