18.3 Cinnamon hangs nearly every shutdown

Post by Captain Brillo » Wed Nov 28, 2018 12:01 pm

Not sure where to post this:

Can't find any solution to this that works more than once -
somebody once said (can't find it again) that running "apt update" and "apt autoremove" occasionally will help, but it actually can just make it worse. If I run autoremove, at least one program will get broken and need to be reinstalled every time.

When it hangs it shows a countdown for the delayed job in question, but that clock will run down, and I still have to manually turn it off.
What the heck is going on here? Getting really ticked off about it.
Every time I bork the Linux box, I learn something new - what a blast!
If it ain't broke, fix it anyway! Ha Ha!

What is the delayed job in question?
Do you get a message like "A stop job is running ... " and it takes 1.5 minutes?
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?
Mint 19.1 Xfce/fluxbox
Manjaro openbox/fluxbox

Yes, that's basically the message.
But when it reaches that time, it just sits there, maybe forever if I let it, but so far I've only left it like that for 1/2 hour or so before I lean on the off button.
Sounds like you know what's up here?

I have the same problem with Mint 19 Cinnamon. Will NEVER shutdown cleanly. After 3 days of trying fixes I'm about to try a new OS or return to Win.

Slow shutdown fix in Mint 19 -> viewtopic.php?f=42&t=276997

I suppose that it is the same thing if systemd is using in Mint 18.

In Mint 18 edit goes:

Code: Select all

gksu xdg-open /etc/systemd/system.conf
