Thanks for the bug report. I'll see about trying to get sudoers setup so this
works more transparently.
I've just checked in and built a new version that should hopefully fix this issue.
It turns out that new Xfce can use HAL shutdown/reboot methods if available.
I just needed to add the right buildrequirements and enable it.
Can you check xfce4-session 126.96.36.199-2 once it's pushed out to the mirrors, and
let me know if that solves the problem? You can also try an unsigned copy direct
from the buildsys at:
Thanks, the update solved the problem. After updating the xfce4-session packages
I'm able to shutdown and reboot the system from xfce
Excellent. Thanks for the bugreport.
I am going to go ahead and close this bug, but if you spot any problems feel
free to re-open it or file a new bug.
