I updated from Ubuntu 11.10, I had installed also XFCE on that version but mainly used Unity, after I upgraded to 12.04 when I shutdown it doesn't shutdown it remains in a XUbuntu splash screeen. I mention that I did't installed, XUbuntu but probably installing XFCE installed also that splash screen.

How can I fix that and make the system shutdown without using hard shutdown?

Run sudo shutdown -h now in the terminal window.

Somehow this fixed also the Shutdown from Unity that I use more often than the command line and now it doesn't halt in the above described splash screen. –  Eduard Florinescu Oct 19 '12 at 8:15
