KDE - reboot PC "to Windows XP" does not work

Bug #120236 reported by Tomas Thiemel on 2007-06-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kdebase (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I select "Logoff..." from main KDE's menu, the dialog will appear - I can choose, what I want to do - to just "logoff", "reboot PC" , "turn off PC", ...

( In KDM I enabled GRUB menu support, so from the main KDM's login screen, when I click on "Reboot PC" and hold mouse, I can select to reboot to "Windows XP"... )

So when I click on "REBOOT" button and hold mouse button down, I can select to reboot to "Windows XP", too. But when I release mouse button, nothing happens. After I press ESCape, I am back in my user session. "Logoff..." from KDE's main button does not work any more.

My friend told me, I should execute "kdeinit_shutdown" to safely logoff... But after I executed "kdeinit_shutdown", I have seen error window, that "ksmserver" made error.

When I just click on "Reboot PC", everything works... :-(

Thanks for your report. This bug seems related to problem with grub support in Kdm logout. A similar issue is described in bug 107642, so I'll mark as duplicate of that. Feel free to report any other problem.
