Re: Lock/logout


I had a similar problem with the logout/shutdown/reboot buttons. In my case I found that `kmserver` was hogging the CPU, so when I killed it it would do the action I told it to (sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't) .

Check if something hogs your resources with htop or ksysguard when you do the logout/shutdown/reboot.

At least this is what happened to me, I don't know if it's the same situation.

Got kind of  a strange one here...Strange enough  that I have no idea where to begin looking.

I have a sid laptop running the latest kde from the sid repos, what looks like 4.14.2. Over the past couple of months, I have noticed that the logout/shutdown buttons do not work, whether I do it from the button on the taskbar or whether I click the menu -> Leave -> Logout/Shutdown/Reboot. I am able to lock the session just fine.

When I click the logout button on the menu, sometimes the logout/lock/reboot dialog will appear, but most times it won't. When it doesn't, even clicking on shutdown in the menu does nothing.

Also, and I'm not sure it is related, something is deleting my user's .bash_history...

Any ideas? Are the two even related? I have two pcbsd on the edge repository running kde-4.14.2 as well, and never see this problem. Admittedly, these are desktop boxes and not a laptop.
