I am having problems with previous version 0.11.0. Have already reported to Bruce. Cannot remember the last time I told Ken that all LXQt exit buttons were working here. Cannot remember what i did for them to work. Cannot remember if Ken solved his problem.

I installed this version, and apparently after, problems appeared.

En passant, build instructions needed to be modified, switches and sed's.

Removed all (0.11.0 and 0.12.0), installed back 0.11.0.

Fact is that only exit session is working, now. For LXDE, LXQt and XFce.

But if I start at runleve 3, with ck-launch-session dbus-launch --exit-with-session start... or from LXDE (runlevel 5), everything works.

Wrote all that, because I am not sure about what to do.

  1. Remove temporarly sddm from 7.8, to restart working at SVN?
  1. Try to fix it (it is taking days from me)?
  1. Try to update to 0.12.0 and see if can make this version work for 7.8?

Milestone will be 7.8, , priority high, until we decide what to do, and if it only does not work for me, good, we change for milestone 7.9, priority normal.

Thank you, Bruce for solving this nightmare.

Took the liberty to reopen, reassign to you and closed.

Thanks, Ken for the patience and discussions.
