SSH Key Agent Not Responding

Post by Askey307 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 10:22 am

Good Morning

I've recently installed a clean version of Mint but getting an SSH Key Agent Not Responding when I try to shut down.
Any suggestions how to fix this and ideas what it is and the cause of it?


Kind Regards

This has been asked and answered on this forum and on the www. There's no real definitive answer and not everyone experiences this issue.
Some say it's cinnamon menu daemon bug, others say it's a kernel bug.
The best solution so far is to install the session manager applet and use that to restart/shutdown the machine.

A little research goes a long way...
