View Full Version : [gnome] Shutdown Prompt in EVERY Gnome distro

September 3rd, 2010, 11:23 AM

Can anyone help? I raised another question on the forum that was linked to Ubuntu 10.4 but that just petered out.

Every single Gnome based distro I have tried on a desktop machine has immediately popped up with the Log Out, Shut Down etc prompt as soon as the desktop loads. I doesn't happen with any KDE based distro!!

I have tried resetting the CMOS/BIOS etc and it's not the Power Pack, tried two!

Anyone else had this or something similar.

The machine is a Fujitsu Siemens Desktop with 3GB RAM, decent graphics etc...

I've tried KDE distros and don't like them as much and really want to get back to a Gnome environment.

It sounds like you've got something broken in your GNOME configuration files.

This will reset your gnome configuration to the default, but try moving the following folders to something like .foldername.backup:


Where '~' is your home folder.
