lets start with one of the problem
all my changes of the panles are gone after restart - why that happend?
Did you save the session bafore you logged out? otherwise it will revert back to your previous setting.
Have you got "save session" field marked?
where is the option for "save session"?
- it`s still not save the changes althougth i marked the "save session" field ( when i login as root it do works)
- why i cant press the restart and shut down buttons? ( also as root i can`t)
Something tells me Arch is not the right distro for you.
I'm thinking that for a long time already.
Todays mistakes are tomorrows catastrophes.
thnks for encourage
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?
ls -la ~
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Aug 2 15:24 home
[av@myhost ~]$ groups audio av

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
- don`t know how - but the panel change problem gone.
- i still can`t restart/shut donw th pc with xfce4 panel althouth i installed hal and dbus as the wiki requisites.
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.

- why didn`t you change the owner to your user? and as i told you dont know how this problem gone
- wiki says to install hal and dbus - unless i missed somthing?
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 ...

You need to be member of the groups "hal" and "dbus"
# gpasswd -a USERNAME dbus # gpasswd -a USERNAME hal
adding the user to "power" groups solved the problem
thanks anyone who tried
