Nearly every single time I go to shutdown KDE (and therefore the computer) that bloody policykit ether crashes the Plasma Desktop Shell process and/or the Policykit process as well and I have to hit CTRL ALT BACKSPACE to shutdown from the login screen. If you can, how do you disable the bloody thing? I am using openSUSE 12.1 with KDE 4.7 installed, all of the computer’s hardware seems to work fine and it starts up with no issues. I would have thought that if most people who use openSUSE also use KDE, this bug would (AND SHOULD) have been discovered. COME ON! NOT GOOD ENOUGH!! Also am I wasting my time upgrading to KDE 4.8, to try and fix this issue?? >:(>:(

I haven’t experienced anything like this, nor read of others reports about this? How do you know if it is due to a bug? Have you searched existing bug reports? Maybe it is due to a failed upgrade, or some config issue within your system. We don’t have access to your system, and you haven’t supplied any useful info for us to proceed further with. At the very least, a relevant screen shot pasted to SUSE Paste
could be useful.
Yes, I often see Plasma Desktop crash when I am rebooting or logging out from KDE. Often, but not always. I have not noticed a reference to PolicyKit, but perhaps that’s my inattention to detail.
I typically stay logged in for around 3-4 days. The longer that I stay logged in, the more likely that there will be a plasma crash on logout (or reboot).
Thank you for your replys, it finally has accepted my password and has not bothered me since. It was PolicyKit that was doing it, and I do not understand why it did not accept it before. As I know I put the correct one in and had the box next to “Remember Authorization” ticked. But once again seems to be solved now. Thank you.
