Quit menu choice does not generate dialog box and can't exit

This is a strange error, or so it seems to me.

I've just gotten 4.4RC1 completely built and running find.  But when I try to exit using the Quit choice on the desktop menu nothing happens.  And I do mean nothing. First there is no dialog prompting me, even though I have Prompt on logout checked in Sessions and Startup.  Second, and worse, it never quits.  As I said everything else is working, so this seems like a strange problem to me.  If I want to get back to a command prompt I have to use Ctrl, Alt, Backspace, which means my sessions aren't saving.

Is there a particular package I should rebuild, or is there a way to generate a log that might tell me where it's failing?

Thanks

p.s.  4.4 looks GREAT.

Re: Quit menu choice does not generate dialog box and can't exit

Are you using a display manager?

If not you might need to customise your quit command.

Try this: http://xubuntu.wordpress.com/2006/07/13 … n-manager/

i'm guessing you have xfce4-session installed?

try running the cmd - xfce4-session-logout
if it works, make a custom Quit entry for it in your menu.

Nope, I'm starting from a command prompt with startx

Yes, I've got it installed and ps says it's running.  So is dbus-lauch if that means anything.
When I run xfce4-session-logout the exact same thing happens, ie nothing.

Any othe thoughts?

So did you take a look at the tutorial?

Yes, I did.  It doesn't apply to me since I don't want to automatically log in to xfce.  I want to log in and start X from a command prompt.

True, but further on it explains why you are not able to log out. If there is no DM things work differently.

I have the same set up as you, no DM, no autologin but my menu includes logout, restart and shutdown and they work.

Re: Quit menu choice does not generate dialog box and can't exit

I'll look at it further but my machine at work is setup the same way to and I don't have to do anything special to exit.  I choose Quit from the menu and the confirmation dialog pops up.  I choose log out and Xfce and X quit and I'm back at a command prompt.  I didn't have to do anything special to get it to work.
