How to fix Linux Mint shutdown problem

Post by Brahim Salem » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:30 pm

If you face a shudown problem on linux mint , which is caused by the switch to plymouth here is the solution:


1- Solution 1: run in terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo shutdown -P now
if this doen't fix the problem then try:

2- Solution 2:

Step 1: Go to terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

It will open the grub file. Change the line

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
to

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" acpi=force apm=power_off
and close it after saving.


Step 2: Again hit the terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/modules

It will open the modules - just type apm power_off=1 below lp and save the file.


Step 3: Next type in the terminal

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
Now the grub will be updated and you won't face any issue with shutdown.

In addition, you may need to modify ACPI configuration to enable smooth shutdown. To do so, type the following in the terminal.

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -rf rt2860sta
sudo modprobe rt2860sta
echo blacklist rt2800pci | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Once you restart your computer, your shutdown would be proper and things won't hang at shutdown.

3- Solution 3:

You can get a patch for mountall from a ppa that will allow you to remove plymouth but this is not going to help this problem which is caused by libplymouth2.

You need libplymouth2. You need to file a bug on this or find one that you can join;
Code:

Code: Select all

ubuntu-bug libplymouth2

replace sudo gedit with sudo leafpad
or install gedit from the package manager.

Is gedit the generally-preferred text editor? (Under Windows I use TSE, The Semware Editor.)

well prefered is not accurate, youdo prefer an application usually because you got used to it.
gedit used to be on a lot of linux distro and therefor is often used as the text editor. Now that you have an idea of how it works you can replace "gedit" with what ever YOU like more. Also for command line I would recoomend to keep it, it's small and you only have to use it when you need to. (a bit like notepad in windows it's just a basic text editor)
