http://i486.net – When you try to shut down your Kubuntu Linux system, using KDE (K Desktop Environment), KDE seems to shut down your computer without any issue, but then your screen becomes black and your system freezes without showing any error messages and getting towards shut down. In this case, you have to press reset button and do hard reboot. KDE is a free desktop environment for Linux computers. The objective of this software is to give basic desktop features for daily needs of users as well as documentation and tools for developers to design stand alone applications for their systems. After this behavior, when you restart your computer, you have to use fsck command for checking hard drive. It can recognize various errors related to file system and other disk data structures. After this problem, you might experience two types of behavior, depending upon the effects of a hard reboot and severity of damage: All the system settings may get lost with basic ones like desktop wallpaper, styles and taskbar layout. You may also lose other things like Kmail accounts, Kaddress book, Kopete settings, Amarok settings and sometimes your KDE Wallet (tool to store passwords on KDE system) gets corrupted. fsck can’t fix the errors and your system does not boot up.
