power botton to shutdown the laptop


(Bruce Lee) #1

i am running parrot O.S version 4.3. I used a USB flash drive to install parrot security 4.3. its interface is mate.
yes, i have multi-booted it along side windows. i have never seen such a beautiful and secure Linux distro in my life.
::::::::::::::PROBLEM ::::::::::::
but, when i tried to shut it down after using it, it shows the parrot wallpaper and i don’t know what it does but, it never shutdowns and i have to press the power button to forcefully to shut it down.
and my GPU is NVIDIA geforce gtx1050. Is it related with my hardware or with the software.

You probably need nvidia-legacy-390xx-drive which is similar with Tesla ones.
Please visit that pagehttps://packages.debian.org/sid/nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver, download the driver, but for the xorg.conf you might need, please join #parrotsec onirc.freenode.net

Try This in root terminal
poweroff
I Know That GUI button Do Same But Sometimes It’s Solved Problem By Command ;

If Your PC Shutdown By Command You Can Create
Command Shortcut In Desktop , Its Also Work As Power Button

Try this : it works for me ( I have the same CPU and GPU like you )
Edit the grub with command line : sudo nano /etc/default/grub in Terminal
or with a text editor as root.
add this : nouveau.modeset=0 nvidia.modeset=0 apparmor=0 to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet”
so the line become :point_right: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“nouveau.modeset=0 nvidia.modeset=0 apparmor=0 quiet”
save by Ctrl X and then press Y , and press ENTER ( when using terminal )
or save the file with the text editor.
run : update-gub in Terminal
shut down and start. It should be OK when trying to shut down, restart or end session again
