comment How to prevent the Power button to shutdown directly the system?
When I upgraded to 13.10 I did a “fresh“ install, but I just took my old /home/user folder with me. Then I had the problem described above (as well as some others). After formatting my / and /home/user drives and doing a completely clean fresh install, everything worked fine. (Of course I did a backup of my important files.) Now I have a fine running system and I also minimized the size of my /home/user folder. :)

I upvoted your answer and I’m sure it would have worked; I reinstalled my whole system. I have had some other problems, too. This (oviously) fixed it for me.

Ok, I think I got it now. I did sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --greeter unity-greeter and all is well now. Thank you :)

Figured out that I need lightdm-webkit-greeter. After installing I did sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --greeter lightdm-gtk-greeter. After that lightdm only showed a black screen with no functionality. No errors were in the logfiles. I switched back to lightdm-gtk-greeter.

Tried installing gdm, purging lightdm and then removing gdm and installing lightdm. After I figured out how to get lightdm running again, the login screen still looks ugly…

lightdm is used by lubuntu, as well. I tried sudo apt-get install --reinstall lightdm but it didn’t fix it.

Everything looks fine now except for the login screen which now looks like the one of lubuntu but an ugly gtk design. Also, I had to reinstall chromium-browser, texlive-full (only metapackage), banshee and had to remove indicator-network which was doing pretty much the same thing as the network-manager.

Wow, that’s a bunch of code… There are some packages in 13.10 that are newer: libabiword-2.9 is now -3.0, libmenu-cache2 is now 3, libobrender27 is now 29, libobt0 is now 2.

I tried this and the powerbtn.sh is (probably) not executed, because nothing happens, when I press the button. The acpi_listen tells me that the button triggers an acpi event. Unfortunately my volume up and down keys don’t work either. Maybe this is related?

I went through my /etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh and found out that it just does nothing. The menu I’m speaking of can be summoned by the command gnome-session-quit --power-off

This does't bring back my beloved menu. It just does nothing when I press the power button now.
