View Full Version : [gnome] Power/Logout button in Hardy not working

April 27th, 2008, 02:09 PM

After upgrading to hardy the gnome "power button" is broken. When i click it gnome freezes up and I don't get the logout/restart/shutdown menu.

Strange enough, it works fine while on a remote X session using nomachine NX. It's broken only for local X sessions.

The behavior is the same whether or not I'm using compiz or metacity.

Any suggestions on logs to capture are much appreciated. For now the only way I have to logout is cntrl-alt-backspace

Solved for me.

Go to System> Preferences> Sessions and in the Startup Programs tab enable gnome-power-manager.

Good Luck,
