Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

I see load sign rotating and nothing more (sometime load sign freezes too). I always have to shut it down manually by power button.
Dell Inspirion 3542.

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

What happens if you log out first then shutdown? If its the same, then it's not related to Xfce.

Also which distro and what version? There may be some log file you can look at to see what is happening.

Edit: I notice from your other thread it's Xubuntu 18.04. Run this command to get the last 250 lines from your previous boot (to capture shutdown messages):

journalctl -b -1 -n250

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

You might need to enable persistent logging to get that.

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

The only thing that's looking like it might be interfering is NetworkManager and your ppp connection. Any chance you can kill your ppp connection first, ensure it's not running and try then again? Maybe also kill NetworkManager?

Also, the output is truncated. I forgot the "--no=pager" option:

journalctl -b -1 -n250 --no-pager

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

I tried to disable connection and stop network manager (sudo service network-manager stop).
It sill hangs.

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

Hmmm. I'm not sure what more to add. If you can log out of Xfce successfully and the hang still happens on shutdown, its not a problem related to Xfce. Perhaps you can ask over at ubuntuforums or askubuntu?

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

Good luck... A friend's PC is experiencing this, for months now. It happens across distros (at least Debian based), across kernels, across desktop environments.

The common suspects seem to be GRUB flags, kernel updates and Secure Boot settings, but sometimes also hardware problems, uninterrupted services, etc. I've found no solution to my friend's problem.

She doesn't care much, as she doesn't usually reboot or suspend and just makes a hard power off after the message of "reached target shutdown".

That machine is still on 14.04, but I've tried several newer distros in live-USB mode and the problem persists. I have planned a migration to 18.04.1 in July, with MX-Linux on the backburner, and I make a search here and there, looking for hints (I was secretly hoping someone here came up with the definitive solution, instead I'm afraid that the problem will persist even with the latest distros and kernels, haha-sigh), so good luck to you and me an all!

edit: grammar

Re: Xubuntu 18.04 freezes on shutdown.

I just installed Fedora 28. I had to write image with Fedora’s `mediawriter`. I used `mediawriter` through VirtualBox.
First I installed Fedora on VirtualBox, installed `Extension pack`, added user to group (on host):

sudo adduser $USER vboxusers

Then logged out and logged in.
And installed mediawriter package on Fedora. Then wrote image to usb-stick.

But it freeze on shutdown like any other of last Linux distros.
