[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#631563: xfce4-session: Problem with reboot/halt and suspend buttons

Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.8.1-3
Severity: normal


I do not manage to use either the reboot/halt buttons nor the
suspend button.

1/ reboot & halt

Reboot and halt buttons are greyed.

I've added /usr/lib/xfce4/session/xfsm-shutdown-helper in the sudoers
file. I usually stop my box with "sudo halt".

But I get:
$ sudo /usr/lib/xfce4/session/xfsm-shutdown-helper

I get the same behavior with root.

I did not found what xfsm-shutdown-helper is supposed to do.

The buttons used to work when xfce was <4.8 or 4.6 (I don't remember).

2/ suspend button

The button is hidden.

"sudo pm-suspend" works.

I also did
"xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p '/shutdown/ShowSuspend' -t 'bool' -s 'true'
(because I set it to false previously).

I don't see where I can search. Any idea?
