Hi,

Please accept my apologies if I am asking this in the wrong place, I don't often have to ask the Gentoo developers anything directly, but I can not find any solution to this problem. In other Linux distributions running gnome shell, when you click the "power" button in the top right corner menu you get a popup asking you what you'd like to do. On my installation this popup never appears and the computer shuts down directly. I have attached the output of "emerge --info", but I do not know what other information to include.

Thank you for your help!
Victor

Output of "emerge --info":

Hi had the same problem, but with KDE... i had no poweroff option but only disconnect option.
I solved this running:

1) revdep-rebuild

2) emerge @preserved-rebuild

3) emerge @module-rebuild (2 consecutive times - at second time i got poweroff option in menu)

Hi Maxxx,

Thanks for the quick reply, but I don't think I'm having the same problem that you had. My top-right menu does show the "power off" option (looks like a power button), which changes to a "suspend" option if I hold down "Alt". But after I click that (without "Alt") I don't get the usual popup window with the three options "Suspend", "Restart" and "Power Off".

Perhaps other distributions ship a modified default config that uses a different extension for the power off button? I do not use Gnome Shell myself so there also could be a different solution...

Hi franzf,

I looked through the Gnome wiki and it seems that getting this popup with power off options is the standard behaviour in Gnome, but on my installation it is bypassed altogether. It feels like a configuration problem with my setup. The wiki I'm referring to is at:

https://wiki.gnome.org/Design/OS/SystemStopRestart

Strange, I've no problem.
When I click on power off I have Cancel/Restart/Power off

How do you start gnome? startx or gdm?
You have installed the entire gnome ebuild or some parts of this ebuild?

Hi sebB,

I start Gnome through gdm.

It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure I didn't install it in parts, because gnome-base/gnome is at version 3.18.0. This is the ebuild you're referring to, right?

Hi sebB,

Under a new user I get the pop-up with the three options as expected (I'm sorry, the options are "Cancel", "Restart" and "Power Off", not as I stated originally).

So the problem is your user config.

Save your prog config and reset your profile.

Hi sebB

Thanks, but I'm afraid I don't understand either of "prog config" or "reset your profile". Are you referring to actions I should carry out in Gnome, or at a more detailed level with the config files in /etc or ~/.config?

Don't touch /etc, only your home folder.

What I suggest you:

- cp your /home/bandurvp to an usb disk (the important is to save the config of your progs i.e. .config, .mozilla, ...)
- log on the new user (bandurvptest) and delete the olduser them rm -r /home/bandurvp
- recreate the bandurvp account
- log into bandurvp
- copy your config files in this account (no the gnome configs)
- delete bandurvptest an delete his folder.

Doing this you will have to reconfigure your gnome session but no your progs.

Maybe there is a most simply solution...

Thank you everybody for your help! I ended up doing a diff on my home directory and that of the fresh user. I decided that the most significant indicator was that the file .config/dconf/user was different between the two, so I replaced mine with the fresh user's. Of course all my settings were obliterated, but at least I got the power options back!
