    Question Troubleshooting Shutdown issues

    I am running 11.04 32-bit Lubuntu on my netbook. What a fantastic OS it is. I am really pleased.

    My issue is that when I shut the machine down it stops at the logout screen. There is a message that says "all processes end in 2 seconds" or something similar.

    I check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/dmesg but do not see a "smoking gun". What is the best way to troubleshoot this?

    Hi,

    Try this:

    Accessories > LXTerminal

    Code:
     sudo shutdown -P now

    Re: Troubleshooting Shutdown issues

    Problems I've had with shutdown from version 10.x onwards have been associated with Quickstarter in Open Office (Libre Office now I think).

    Open the Wordprocessor (or any other application from the suite). Choose Tools>Options>Memory and then make sure that "Enable systray Quickstarter" box is unchecked.

    I believe that in version 11.x Quickstarter is enabled by default.

    Lubuntu does NOT have Open Office nor Libre Office. Lubuntu comes with AbiWord, Gnumeric and Osmo for Office Apps

    which is why in Lubuntu I wiped out abiword and installed libreoffice-writer and have never looked back. if only I could easily do the same for PCManFM.
