Default shutdown not working in Gnome / KDE

Hi,

I can only shut down my pc from a root terminal with 'poweroff' (or
shutdown) but not from graphical environments.

>From Gnome2, sometimes it shuts down, sometimes I get back to gdm. From
gdm, the shutdown action sometimes works, sometimes it just quits gdm.

In KDE 4.7.4, shutdown in the application launcher menu does nothing, or
dims the screen.

How do I fix this? I do not see any error messages.

Debian unstable, 3.1.0-1-686-pae

thanks.

GNOME2? What Debian flavour are you running?

If it used to work, I would report it.

Unstable and GNOME2? :-?

Anyway, that kernel is old. Try to update it (now 3.2.10).

you mean with the reportbug program? I don't know in which package this
bug is. (I never reported any Debian bugs before)

I didn't do a dist upgrade, so some packages are older. I wanted to keep
gnome2 because I won't use gnome3.

OK I will try it, thanks.

Regards,
Peter

Or manually (by e-mail), you can choose what's best way for you:

As the problem it presents when you're inside X (you can shutdown the
system on a tty) you can register the bug against gnome or kde package.
Don't worry for a bad assignation, devels/packagers will correct it
should needed.

This can be also a source for problems and a big can of worms... GNOME 2
(and its associated libraries) will be dropped sooner or later and
keeping it up-to-date from wheezy onwards it does not have to be an easy
task.

It sounds more a DE issue than nothing but who knows, it may help.
