Since I upgraded to 11.10, neither the "shutdown" (for shutdown or restart) nor the "logout" options in the upper-right-corner menu work. They simply do nothing.
While waiting for Ubuntu to release a fix, is there something I can do to have them work again?
My current workaround for rebooting or shutting down is to open a terminal and type "shutdown -r now" or "shutdown -h now", which work. Is there a similar workaround for logging out?
Anyway I'm also looking for a real fix that would make the shutdown/logout options in the menu work.
Hibernate and suspend do work, by the way.
