"Solved" XFCE - Restart and Shutdown button are inactive

Even if I'm the power group (I even rebooted)
acpi is installed. How do debug this futher?

None. I start Xorg by using startx.

Eh, I have no idea what did it. But I just installed a bunch of new packages, and suddenly the buttons were available.

Maybe you could look through /var/log/pacman.log and post what you installed for the benefit of posterity wink

Re: "Solved" XFCE - Restart and Shutdown button are inactive

I noticed this problem after recent updates. I usually started Xfce with the command "startx & logout". Now the halt/reboot buttons in Xfce are inactive if I log out from the TTY. If i stay logged in the TTY or use Slim to log in, they are active.

Edit: Here is my .xinitrc:

#!/bin/sh
#
# ~/.xinitrc
#
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)

#if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
#  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
#   [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
#  done
#  unset f
#fi

# exec gnome-session
# exec startkde
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch startxfce4
# ...or the Window Manager of your choice

Re: "Solved" XFCE - Restart and Shutdown button are inactive

A couple a days ago my 'restart/shutdown' buttons suddenly were inactive to me too. I'm not using any login manager and i'm logging straight from inittab and even though I have  'ck-launch and dbus-launch' inside my '.xinitrc' the buttons were still greyed. Also, the user already belongs to the 'power' group.

My fix was to add the following:
