How to stop password prompt when shutting down Xubuntu
This has been very frustrating since I installed Linux, I cannot figure out how to get rid of this annoying prompt it's useless, this is not a server, this is not a multi user environment, I should not be forced to do this every single time.
It only seems to happen when F@H (which runs as a different unified user throughout my network) is running. I DO NOT want to make it run under my user, then all hell will break loose when I need to make the network permissions work on the share. I want to keep it running as the user it's running under, but I want to get rid of this annoying prompt.
The only thing that seems to work to bypass this prompt is if I hit the power button. I also tried writing a sudo shutdown now script but all hell breaks loose, some process looks for a file that can't be found or something and I get the infamouse ctrl+D prompt. Thankfully my system was not hosed. Usually that prompt does not mean good at all!
So yeah I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me how I'd go about disabling this. Thanks!
Oh and also, possibly related, when at the normal startup password prompt, if I choose to shutdown or restart, nothing happens. It just goes back to the logon box. This used to work before but randomly stopped. Any way to fix this?
