Re: Quit button login screen not working

Thanks again for the excellent help, your suggestion works beautifully, now tap-to-click is behaving like it should on the login screen buttons.
One remark for future lurkers of this topic: the actual path is /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Don't worry, I'm not offended that easily :D I just think it's quirky behaviour/behavior (UK/US). Thanks for the help and excellent clarification, will certainly give that a try. Thumbs up! PS Since I'm certainly not going to be the only one surprised by this, maybe it would be a good idea to make t...

Re: Quit button login screen not working

single tap or double-tap gives the same result as using the buttons below the touchpad in ALL other cases everywhere. So calling this a user error is a bit far-fetched? If anything I would rather name it a quirk in the login screen... :lol: And yes the left and right button on the touchpad work just...

Re: Quit button login screen not working

No, it's not a driver issue in that sense, for all other purposes the touchpad works and clicks away just fine, just not on the buttons on that login screen :? Even funnier than that: using the right click (on the touchpad) makes the buttons behave as they should, working fine. But using double-tap ...

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Aha! Found the culprit, I think :shock: In a flash of divine inspiration I decided to attach a Logitech mouse to the laptop instead of using the built-in touchpad. Guess what? Buttons function perfectly! So yes, it is hardware related, seems the Touchpad in the Asus Zenbook UX430UA-GV002T does not w...

Re: Quit button login screen not working

yes, verified integrity from the ISO boot CD (USB) menu
checksum OK

Will try to download anew from another mirror and put it on another flash drive, then do a reinstall and report back

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Live cd has no login screen as far as I recall?
So can't check that...

But doing log out on live cd and then checking the buttons: same result as installation, no dice...just the tooltips

Must be something which wedged itself steathily in the v2 iso?

Re: Quit button login screen not working

sorry, took a while as I decided to redo a complete clean install just to make sure, only Secure Boot disabled, nothing else changed. Same results. used Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64bit v2 iso, media integrity checked. I have entered the issue on Github this morning. cat: /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf...

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Funny thing is: this is a very clean install (4 hrs old). On a brand new Zenbook with brand new SSD.
BIOS was checked beforehand. Only change was for UEFI secure boot, first disabled then after installation enabled with sudo mokutil --enable-validation.
Will enter this on Github later.

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Alas, no change
Strange thing is that in 18.3 I can hover over the icons and the menu pops out, but on 19 the icon needs to be clicked for just the tooltip to pop out.
Need some sleep now, so more hunting for the cause tomorrow.
Thanks for your efforts so far.

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Accessibility, keyboard, time and power button on the login screen only show the tooltips, so all have the same behaviour. They cannot be clicked and show no menus when clicked.
Tried 2x to reinstall cinnamon session, but that did not make any difference either.

Thanks for the help so far!

Re: Quit button login screen not working

thanks for the tip! just did that, but unfortunately it did not change the result.
after logout, just the tooltip.

I know it's not the end of the world, it's just annoying :roll:

sorry, forgot to add:
after logging in running cinnamon-session-quit --power-off from a terminal works excellently also :D

Re: Quit button login screen not working

Yes, integrity of flash drive iso content was checked before installation.
Are we talking about the same thing? I am talking about the button on the login screen (top right of the screen _before_ logging in).

The quit button after login works just fine (bottom left on the menu).
