In KDE, I have Ctrl+Alt+Del specified as shortcut for Log Out in KDE Session Manager, but once I press it - nothing happens.

The same happens with Log Out Without Confirmation and other shortcuts.

How to fix it?

P.S. Restarting KDE Session (or even rebooting PC) does not help.


Did you add the shortcuts from before an upgrade, I noticed that the key shortcuts changed from ctrl to something like primary and secondary, to support right and left ctrl shortcuts.

Try changing the keypress, and use the option to press the keys to get the shortcut.


There are two Log Outs, one in Run Command Interface, and the other in The KDE Session Manager. In my computer, it won't work if you assign Ctrl+Alt+Del to the former. So may it work if you assign to the later.
