"Shutdown" and "Restart" option missing after upgrade


Hi

After upgrading from Mandriva 2006 to 2007, KDE lost the "shutdown" and "restart options. KDM is installed and used, but when selecting "KDE" as session, it will not login and instead, after some time, come back to the login screen. All local users are allowed to shutdown machine. KDE itself is in both cases the version which came on the CD's.

Thanks for your help

Re-install or run the upgrade again (off cd?).

I think some thing has not been carried across to the 2007 install.

Check for any config files named (something).new

These files may need to be renamed to be of normal use.

The old files may be looked at to check if settings need to be adjusted.

I am having this same issue. Have to shutdown the computer either from console or by logging out first. I also have set the "AllowShutdown"-option to "All" in /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc.

Auto-login is also not working. It tries to login automatically, but then gives an error saying that it failed and returns back to the login screen.

Same problem here. When I disable the 3D desktop effects everything is fine though. Auto-login is working properly and I have my shutdown/reboot options back. I guess I'll just stick with 2D effects.

Possible

But for me not even the 3d stuff worked before. Now it does halfway. Autologin is working, but I still can't shutdown from KDE

I also have another problem: when shutting down, the machine only halts, but does not power off. I tried different methods from the command line (shutdown -P now, halt -p), but the machine still refuses to power off (remember those old i486/Pentiums where you had to press the power button? My machine behaves like that). With 2006 and other distros it works flawlessly. Any idea?

normal if you selected higher security level (aka no 4)

run draksec level 3 (High)

Hi again,
I did not mean to crash this post and I hope allposters above got their problems solved..
I thank you for the suggestion of security level..I would have never thought of that..
I am not sure how I did it but it's working now..
I tried updating KDM and it seemed to work for now..
BTW I did check my security level and it's set on "standard" just one step above "poor"...
