[SOLVED]Disable Shutdown and Reboot from XFCE

Hi all smile
I would like to disable the shutdown and reboot buttons from XFCE (4.10) or to do disable shutdown/reboot systemwide.
I searched for specific xfce instructions and all i could find was using xfconf-query[1] and afaik it can only disable hibernate and suspend buttons

Re: [SOLVED]Disable Shutdown and Reboot from XFCE

Are those users members of the power group?

Remove them, logout, and log back in.

Re: [SOLVED]Disable Shutdown and Reboot from XFCE

I don't use Xfce, but this post seems to indicate you could add only users you want to be able to shutdown/reboot in etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/kioskrc, and this would disable them for other users:

How to post. A sincere effort to use modest and proper language and grammar is a sign of respect toward the community.

@nadman10
it had no change to remove my users from the power group sad
@2ManyDogs
Creating that file (/etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/kioskrc) and setting which users could shutdown solved the problem big_smile

Thanks for your time smile
