Question Halt and reboot buttons in Xfce session aren't active


Only to exit the Xfce session but other two are locked. Why? My user is in "power" group and I run Xfce as "startxfce4" from VC after login. Arch Linux.

Just a guess, but as you never know...
Does your user have the rights to do it? Maybe you have to give it via sudo or something like that...

I did
Code:
chmod +s `which halt`
chmod +s `which reboot`
so my user can do it.

Thumbs up Solved!

So I changed the start method to
Code:
exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session ck-launch-session startxfce4
in xinitrc and now everything works. More info here.
