Freezes at Logout


Mint 17.1 XFCE 32bit freezes as soon as I click on the Logout button. It does shutdown if I enter sudo shutdown - h now. I just installed several days ago. I selected login automatically during install as the login is wonky. There is a long delay between typing in the username field and the dots? appearing. sometimes the password field will come up before the username field is completed. I do not have this shutdown problem with Cinnamon or Mate 17 32bit on the same machine.

What do you mean, "the login is wonky"? What exactly was happening? Whatever was wonky on login might give a hint as to what's wonky on logout.

Have you looked in the log files in /var/log? In Mint Cinnamon, there's a directory /var/logs/mdm (Mint Display Manager). I don't know what display manager Mint XFCE uses, but I'd look for a similar directory in your system, then inspect the files in it for any indication of what might be hanging up. Others I might inspect would be /var/log/syslog and /var/log/mintsystem.log.
