I’ve installed openSUSE 11.4 fresh on my laptop. When I do a shutdown from Gnome and choose the Shut Down option I always return back to the login screen and from there I need to choose the shutdown command again and it works from there. Is there a way to fix the first shutdown option from within Gnome so that it shuts down instead of logging out?
Did you install kde originally
