Solved: Enable Restart and Shut Down from xfce "Quit" button

Postby gurfle » 2009-10-17 05:20

I have googled a fair amount, but nothing helpful has turned up.

For example I could not get the suggestions regarding entering xfsm-shutdown-helper in the sudoers file or messing with kiosk mode options at
Code: Select all
http://www.xfce.org/documentation/4.2/manuals/xfce4-session
to do anything for me.

I also found some reference to configuring the "Login Window" by checking "Show Actions menu" on the "Menu Bar", but that was not it either.

What am I missing?

I may be wrong about this since I very rarely use Xfce and it was ages since I configured it last time around but I think this is what you want in the file /etc/sudoers

Code: Select all
username ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/sbin/xfsm-shutdown-helper

Thanks . . . Your memory is good: This worked instantly :D The sudoer instructions in http://www.xfce.org/documentation/4.2/m ... e4-session are certainly hopelessly dated, at least for my Debian Lenny!
