I have difficulties in cleanly shutdown or logout from within kde, as nothing happens when I click any buttons on the kdm logout window.
The kdm logout window just disappears and no shutdown, no logout happens.
In the meantime I found some more strange things: there is absolutely way to logout by the first attempt. By the second attempt I can succeed if (and only if) I hold down the left mouse button on the OK button of the kdm logout window for cca. 3-5 seconds before releasing it. If I release it before 3s or after 5s then it will fail again, and no further logout attempts will be successful.
Shutdown from a konsole window with the "shutdown -h" command always works.
Could you help me how to achieve a reliable logout or shutdown by kdm?
