[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#886818: Controls to shut down the system are unavailable

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.18.3-5
Severity: normal


Up to a week or so ago, lightdm would show controls on the login screen
to shut down and/or reboot the system. Currently, it does not do so
anymore. I'm not sure what changed.

I did notice #770885, but 
- that is about greyed out, not removed, controls
- that is about using sysvinit, whereas I use systemd

I use awesomewm as my user interface, no desktop manager; TTBOMK awesome
does not support shutting down the system at logoff time, and I haven't
tried installing XFCE or some such. If you need me to test that, do ask.
I suspect it wouldn't change the situation much, however.
