Slow shutdown/logout on Plasma 6

I waited a while before asking because I was hoping that the various updates would fix the problem but it did not happen. When I close the session or turn off the computer, Plasma takes a long time to close (sometimes up to a minute). Does anyone have the same problem?


are you running any virtual machines?

i installed VMM and set one up and left it running (also defaults to autostart)

so everytime i tried to reboot my machine after setting that up it took forever to shutdown until i took as pic of the text that flashed across the screen and it was a process designed to allow the VM to shut down before the host.

just something to check.

I have the same issue.

From journalctl it seems krunner service gets stuck with systemd shutting it down.

I still didn’t look in the bug tracker, as I run openSUSE Argon, which is based on Leap, I assumed it could be a matter of an outdated systemd, and I was hopefully waiting to it fix itself on an update.

BTW, the “waiting for user session” takes 1 minute and 30 seconds before force closing it, on my installation.

Same problem here, didn’t investigate but from shutdown screen it’s visible some services take time to stop.
It doesn’t happen every time, only sometimes.

no, I haven’t vmm
