    Default Vlc blocks logout

    Whenever vlc is running and I try to log out, a KDE window opens and tells me "logout cancelled by vlc". I have to repeat the process. How do I disable this unwanted "feature"?

    What if Thunderbird, Firefox, LibreOffice, Gwenview etc. all decided I shouldn't log out? Would I have to log out six or seven times?

    Doesn't sound logical to me.

    Thanks.

    me either...and, looks like a bug to me...and while i doubt the problem
    is is in openSUSE's coding, it may be and if not they can send it
    upstream, so begin here: http://tinyurl.com/nzhq7j

    and, when you have the bug number/URL, please post it back to here so
    those following in on this problem via google can add to the bug report
    or just check its status..

    thanks!

    This appears to be an old bug which has yet to be solved, see the following link:

    The VideoLAN Forums KDE: "Logout cancelled by 'vlc'" .... ???!

    well, that link ends with the suggestion to file a bug--but, was it?

    too many people believe that posting in this forum or the one cited is
    the same as logging a bug....

    DenverD,

    please calm down, I'm trying to understand myself what is going on before I submit a bug report. I added this to the thread as a reference so that people can see that it is not an isolated issue and that we have a bit more to go on before proceeding.

    There is an open ticket at VLC:

    #4606 (VLC player cancels KDE logout)
