Re: <SOLVED> Mint 15 KDE will not shut down or restart

I guess I should clarify I didn't update the driver through Terminal. I went to the Driver Manager, where the list of proprietary drivers are, and clicked on Nvidia 310 (the recommended driver) to change from the default Nouveau. Then clicked Install. I was led to believe there was no longer any add...

Re: <SOLVED> Mint 15 KDE will not shut down or restart

Update: I wanted to update since I think I have finally figured out why my system was hanging while shutting down/rebooting in KDE in hopes this might help others. After I uninstalled Mint KDE and installed Mint XFCE over it, even though it worked, it was too much of a change from KDE, and I missed ...

Re: <SOLVED> Mint 15 KDE will not shut down or restart

Thank you, Poloshiao, for your encouragement. :) I'm happy everything's working smoothly again, and hopefully this thread may help anyone else with the same bug.

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

After looking at the sys log for errors several times, I couldn't narrow it down to anything that looked like I could fix, so I gave up and went with my backup plan to delete Mint KDE and install Mint 15 XFCE over it. So far, after a couple days of early testing, I haven't had any more problems with...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

Wow, thank you for all the research and info! I guess because I'm still learning my way around Linux OS's, when you said to disconnect network connections manually, I don't know how to do that other than to physically unplug the cable. I couldn't figure out how to disconnect from the networking inte...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

I'm anything but an expert, but surely something's wrong with your sdb hard disk and/or your ATA bus. Doesn't it take a long while when booting as well? Normally at boot the systems check the HDs, if problems appear it usually takes a long while to boot. A problematic HD also uses to cause odd beha...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

Update: @mank_in and Irishwoody: I first tried what was suggested in the older post in the link, editing grub to add acpi_osi=Linux. At first I thought it worked as shutdown went normally, but after that, restarting and shutting down once again went to a blank screen and hung while the monitor shut ...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

@Poloshiao: I'm sorry the download text didn't work. I followed your instructions using the commmands and clicked Select all, and copy/pasted the text exactly as it was shown into the paste bin box. I'm not sure why the website turned the text into a single long line of text? I didn't change any set...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

Thank you, Snapcase, for clarifying what Poloshiao wanted me to do! When I tried the #1 code, it shutdown normally instead of going immediately to a blank screen. Feels like going to an auto mechanic with a problem and suddenly it works normally. So, I don't know if there are any signs of the proble...

Re: Mint 15 KDE will not shut down to turn off or restart

My apologies, I really do appreciate you're trying to help me. I still don't understand your instructions though. Maybe I should have posted in the newbie forum as I'm still mostly a newbie to using Terminal. Do you or anyone else have any other simpler ideas or tips I can try?

<SOLVED> Mint 15 KDE will not shut down or restart

Hello. I hope I'm posting in the correct forum. I'm a fairly recent newbie to Linux in past couple months (learning as fast as I can). I loved Mint 14 KDE and was excited to install the new Mint 15 KDE (32 bit) release this week. It's worked almost flawlessly except I noticed it started to randomly ...
