TW KDE installed some weeks ago and up-to-date. If I try to use the shutdown in GUI the screen turns black, the Bleachbit windows however remains visible. Afterwards nothig changes and the machine sits there. I had a look in dmsg and journalctl, but there is nothing strange, no process waiting for a time-out or something.
If I switch to CTRL+ALT+F2, login in and do “shutdown -h now” it closes down within 5 sec.
When you shutdown from within KDE, you are trying to shutdown as an ordinary user. When you shutdown from the login screen, you are trying to shutdown as a privileged user.
I occasionally see this with Icewm. After an update, shutdown within an “Icewm” desktop session doesn’t do anything, and I have to logout and shutdown from the login screen. Presumably the update that I have just done has affected how “Icewm” shuts the system down. But it is usually fine again after reboot.
Any way to reset all privileges to “default”? There is something special about this TW as I can access the DVB-S2 receiver via VNC (which worked fine in the past), most likely due to strict user privileges for accessing hardware from remote…
