Re: some problems with xfce

Something tells me Arch is not the right distro for you.

Did you check the wiki how to set up your system so you can have ordinary users shutdown/reboot?

Re: some problems with xfce

dids22, I'm quite sure this is not session saving related, since I never saved my session, but my configuration is not affected. There is something wrong with your configuration files stored in your home folder. Perhaps they get deleted every time, I guess there is some permission issue.

I'm not really expert here, but as a start you could try to read this page in the wiki: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xfce

Also, what groups does your user belong to?

Who owns your home?

Re: some problems with xfce

You should check the ownership of your home folder, not of the /home directory, so you should do:

ls -la /home

and look for the folder named after your username (it should be called "av").

Also your user should also be in the group "users".

Another reading I suggest you to do is this one: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners_Guide
You should have followed it during installation, everything would have been much easier for you, it's a very good guide in my opinion smile

Re: some problems with xfce

The Xfce Wiki has instructions on how to allow regular users to shutdown/reboot.

The panel issue (and any subsequent problems that "work" when you are root) may be due to the /home/username/.cache directory.  I noticed a couple weeks ago that for whatever reason, the permissions for .cache changed to root.  I couldn't even view the contents of the directory.  I fixed it by doing:

# rm -rf /home/username/.cache

Note: this will probably reset your panel settings, etc. but hopefully you'll only have to do it once.

Re: some problems with xfce

Perhaps the section titled How to shutdown and reboot from Xfce? smile

Re: some problems with xfce

why you don`t listening ?

therefore, if you enable the DBUS and HAL daemon's, you can skip this section. XFCE now utilizes DBUS. Make sure DBUS and HAL are enabled at boot (these can be added to the daemon array in /etc/rc.conf) and voila, you should be able to select the shutdown/reboot options from within XFCE. Also

they both installed and they are existing in daemon array but ... sad

Re: some problems with xfce

You need to be member of the groups "hal" and "dbus"

# gpasswd -a USERNAME dbus
# gpasswd -a USERNAME hal
