    KDE won't logout, reboot or shutdown

    Sometimes KDE won't logout, reboot or shutdown when I go to the proper menu.

    How do I fix this?

    Using KDE 4.8.5 on 64bit Ubuntu 12.04
    I am a casual linux user who simply wants a Windows replacement. I have little computer knowledge so speak to me as if I were an easily confused child. Thank you.

    When that happens have you tried to reboot or shutdown through a terminal, and did that produce the desired result?

    Unfortunately I don't know much about terminal. I was in my non-root account. I tried the following in terminal but got the reply that I needed to be root.

    shutdown -h now
    reboot -h now

    I assume my syntax is correct but like I said, I don't know that much about command line. I always manually reboot when this happens.

    Just add sudo to the front of either command while in the Terminal window.

    I.E.

    sudo shutdown -h now
    sudo reboot -h now

    Although you really can replace the bottom one with Sudo shutdown -r now. Think it does the same thing.

    reinstall the package menu-xdg or install it if it is not installed. this is the one that has the reboot shutdown options
    Not wasting my time with any more good signatures. Even asterisk are vulgar
