shutdown and restart buttons don't work
« on: July 29, 2014, 01:56:35 pm »
I installed 3.4 base Openbox on two computers and the only way to shut down the computers is to type a shutdown command in a terminal. Clicking on the normal shutdown button in the menu does nothing and clicking on the restart button it looks like it tries to shut down but fails. SparkyLinux E-18 and RazorQT work correctly. Other Openbox distros shut down correctly. The menu is a bit of a mess too with programs scattered all over and some of the programs not working. To work they have to be accessed through the Debian menu.

I know that, it happed after last week upgrades from Debian.
Just the logout window does not want to start.
I don't have a solution for that yet.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

OK, it's fixed.
Refresh packages list and install: 'wm-logout'.
It will overwrite the old logout script.
