I'm building up an openbox system, which was originally an LXQT install, and encountering a strange problem.
If I shutdown within openbox, in any way including the terminal, the shutdown is extremely slow -- minimum of 2 minutes, usually longer. But if I exit openbox and shutdown from the dm, the machine shutdown in about 3 seconds.
Before I realized this, I thought it maybe watchdog, which I blacklisted to no effect.
Other than that, I removed a lot of LXQT functionality, including the session itself. This may very well be related, but I can't figure out how. I know I'm hacking around and things would be a lot simpler if I had started with the Openbox edition! But hindsight is 20/20 and I pretty much have this openbox running great otherwise!
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
