Thread: shutdown -h now don't works from graphics

  1. #1

    Default shutdown -h now don't works from graphics

    opensuse 12.1 with kde 4.9,
    If I click on the shutdown icon, a window appear, I click on the "turn off computer" red icon, but computer screen become black, the moure arrow remain fixed there, and the pc doesn't shut down.
    I checked in >system settings>login screen>shutdown>= "/sbin/shutdown -h -P now", I tried also "/sbin/shutdown -h now" and in both cases it doesn't works.
    If I do alt-ctrl-F2 to access in a console, login as root, and perform /sbin/shutdown -h now it works perfectly.

    what can I do to perform a shutdown in the graphical way??

    thanks, ciao, pier:-)

    It is the same, from alt-ctrl-F2 console /bin/systemctl poweroff and /bin/systemctl reboot works, graphically, clicking on the "turn
    off computer" red icon
    don't works.

    +1 Here i havent found a solution yet...it seems that if we have many repositories, suse makes a mess and other people have faced similar problem...If i want to shutdown i have to go to terminal -> su -> "/sbin/shutdown -h -P now" which is ver anoying... Hope anyone could solve this.

    If you are mixing many repos then you have something with mixed version. Give list of repos

    zypper lr -U

    In YaST2- /etc/sysconfig Editor under

    --Desktop --Display manager

    DISPLAYMANAGER_SHUTDOWN

    have you checked this parameter is set to

    all

    ?

    If set to anything else, one cmd to powering off is,

    kdesu -c 'halt -hip'

    but then root password will be asked for.
