Incomplete logout with Gnome/systemd

Hey,

I'm using Gnome 3.6 from the testing repositories. That is because with the current stable version (3.4) custom shortcuts and media keys do not work on my system. But I don't think the version of Gnome does matter, since I experienced the same issue with Gnome 3.4. Also, I'm using systemd, the OS is only installed for a week now.

When I log off (via the Gnome menu) and get to the login screen, I cannot shutdown or restart the system without providing root authentication. My root user doesn't have a password since I'm using sudo, so I have to login again and use shutdown/restart from the menu.

The authentication dialog tells me, I need to authenticate to shutdown while there are still users logged in. However, no one else should be logged in, since I'm using the PC alone. So there really is no reason to ask for authentication. If I log in via terminal, the following users are on the system:

$ who
(unknown)  :1     2012-10-25 18:02 (:1)
joker      tty2   2012-10-25 18:05
$ users
(unknown) joker

joker is my local user which I logged in as on the terminal. As I understand, (unknown) is the gdm instance. So everything seems to be right. Still, Gnome wants me to authenticate after I logged out of the terminal session again.

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30529 seems to fit my problem, but killing pulseaudio does not help in my case. I also tried changing the polkit policies in vim /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.consolekit.policy to allow shutdown and restart without authentication even if multiple users are still logged in. But that didn't change anything either.

Can anyone help me with this? Just tell me what additional data you might need.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Incomplete logout with Gnome/systemd

Yeah, but I don't think it has anything to do with Gnome's version in particular, as I experienced the same with Gnome 3.4. I stated that in my post. Shouldn't have included the version number in the title, though...

Re: Incomplete logout with Gnome/systemd

I'm having exactly the same problem since the upgrade to Gnome 3.6. Not using [testing].

Re: Incomplete logout with Gnome/systemd

In my case it is because of gvfsd-trash and pulseaudio still running after logout. Actually, pulseaudio exits by itself in 20 seconds. To make it stop immediately, one can set "exit-idle-time = 0" in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf.

Re: Incomplete logout with Gnome/systemd

maybe tracker-miner-fs is still running? If yes, vote for bug

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30529

problem with pulseaudio  was solved with the mentioned configuration, but since gnome-3.6 there seems to be a bug in gvfs that keeps tracker-miner-fs from exiting with session.

This is IMO no more a [testing] thread.
