    Shutdown, Restart, Logout, all no longer working since upgrade to 13.10

    After upgrading to 13.10, ... Shutdown, Restart, and Logout... items not working. Nothing happens at all.....No process starts. I'm referring to shutdown etc..from the "gear" menu dropdown. I can find nothing posted on this item except 'it may be a bug".

    Having to bring up a terminal and use "sudo shutdown -P now" command.

    Any help would be appreciated...... whatever it takes

    Well, I found a kind-of solution:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...+13.10+upgrade

    If you follow the steps outlined in the first response by adec2, you will be able to shutdown Ubuntu by clicking on the cog-looking thing in the top right corner & selecting "Shut Down". You will no longer get a confirmation dialogue box, but at least Ubuntu will shutdown...

    So you need to open "dconf Editor" and go to /apps/indicator-session and tick the box next to /suppress-logout-restart-shutdown

    Hope that helps...
