I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04. Shutdown and logout from the top panel are not working.
They worked fine when installing the OS, but a few days back I installed fglrx drivers for my ATI graphics card. They didn't work and I got low resolution problems and Ubuntu didn't boot. I solved it by removing the fglrx graphic driver from the recovery mode and Ubuntu started to boot and work just fine, at least that's what I thought.
But now the shutdown and logout options in the top panel don't work. I have to logout using ctrl+alt+delete and shutdown with the shutdown option in the top panel (shutdown option works after logging out but not when logged in as a user).
I re-installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and shutdown options worked fine but after installing updates they stopped working again. I thought its the graphic driver fglrx installation problem but now i know its not that. I think its a problem with some file that got installed from Ubuntu updates.
Does any one know how to solve it?
