|Yesterday I (almost) successfully finished migrating my laptop to systemd and after some tweaks I brought my box to work but I noticed that power options (suspend, hibernate) disappeared from gnome2 panels and menus while the power-off button on a panel is greyed. I think it could happen after removing consolekit package but I have no idea what may be the real cause of the problem.
The only possibility to shutdown the system as a non-root user is to press Ctrl-Alt-Del and to click "Power off" although the dialog window lacks of suspend and hibernate options.
Another strange effect is that after pressing the hardware power-off button I see two or more dialog windows saying that weather report and clock applets were finished abnormally but no shutdown occurs.
I ran out of ideas - every hint will be highly appreciated.
After some time...
I've downgraded my configuration i.e:
- installed back sys-auth/consolekit-0.4.6
- recompiled gnome-base/gdm-2.20.11-r1, net-misc/networkmanager-0.9.6.4, sys-auth/pambase-20120417-r3 and x11-apps/xdm-1.1.11-r3 with USE="consolekit"
and the desired buttons returned to their place.
Is it possible to have gnome-2 with systemd and without consolekit or I have to upgrade to gnome-3 to get rid of consolekit?
Is gdm-2.20 able to function without consolekit (it seems that this is the main reason of the anomalies).
