In Kubuntu 20.04 I get a pop-up from the Taskbar 'Logout prevented by /usr/bin/clemantine '

Asked by Terry Coles on 2020-05-19

This has only started since I upgraded my system to Kubuntu 20.04. When I select 'Log Out', 'Shutdown' or 'Restart' from the KDE Menu, I get a pop-up from the Taskbar that says; 'Logout prevented by /usr/bin/clemantine '. This only lasts for a few seconds and then disappears. If I then try again, it works.

Clearly this more of an irritation than anything, but if there's a fix for this it would be useful to know.

I'm sure that if I were to shut down Clementine before attempting to log out, this would prevent the message, but I like leaving Apps that I use every day running at shutdown so they come up automatically the next time I boot up.

Can anyone help?

Is this the music player Clementine

Yes. It is now the default player in Kubuntu since Amarok was discontinued.

Someone on my local LUG found this:

So it is known about, but no fix yet.

I asked a question about this on the Kubuntu Forums and one of the people over there came up with a work-round; disable the tray icon! I tried it and it works.

It isn't a solution, but it's an acceptable work-round.

Can you help with this problem?
