View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.10 systematically ask for admin password when shutting down

March 27th, 2013, 11:21 AM
I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 from 12.04. Every time I want to reboot or shut down Ubuntu asks for the root password. It even happens if I shut down just after restarting (which means there are no admin application running).

I have tried to see if several sessions were opened, using ck-list-sessions. Here what I see:

unix-user = '1000'
realname = XXXXXXXXXX
seat = 'Seat1'
session-type = 'x11'
active = TRUE
x11-display = ':0'
x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
display-device = '/dev/tty7'
remote-host-name = ''
is-local = TRUE
on-since = '2013-03-26T20:29:30.297477Z'
login-session-id = '4294967295'

It seems there is only one session, although it says 'Session2'

Any idea how to sort this out?
