yesterday afternoon I started having some strange things occurring on
my F27 system with MATE desktop. First issue is that when I tried to
logout it didn't, even though it prompted for logout. What's
interesting is that the "System" pulldown menu was missing the
"Shutdown" option and the confirmation dialog only had 2 buttons,
"Logout" and "Cancel". What happened after I clicked logout is that my
session restarted all the apps I had running restarted, but now I had 2
volume control applets and 2 NetworkManager applets in the top panel. I
tried again, this time though the "Shutdown" option re-appeared in the
"System" pull down menu. However, my session restarted and now there
were 3 volume control applets and 3 NetworkManager applets in the top
panel. I tried again, and again my session restarted with now 4 volume
control applets and 4 NetworkManager applets. In each case so far there
were only 2 buttons on the logout confirmation dialog. I tried again,
but this time the logout confirmation dialog had 3 buttons, I clicked on
logout and this time it finally did log me out.
The second issue is that now whenever I plug in an external USB drive I
get a popup saying I'm not authorized to perform the operation. This
last issue is really annoying since it has always worked. I haven't
changed anything so I have no idea what suddenly caused these problems
What's interesting about this last issue is that sometimes it does mount
the drive when I login, however, if I unmount it, unplug it and plug it
back in I get the "Not authorized to perform operation" message.
These 2 problems only occur on one of my 2 F27 systems running MATE.
Anyone know what might have changed and how do I fix it?
Any help is appreciated.
