Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

lxsession-logout uses dbus socket to request the actions, oblogout simply calls bash scripts.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

Might be OT but I'm an openbox user and experienced similar problems, no graphical logout, reboot or shutdown.
This thread may hold the answer: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=151786&p=1
Seems that the latest pango update may be the culprit. After downgrading to pango 1.30.1 full functionality was restored. YMMV.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

I'm using lxdm with xfce. One System uses .xinitrc and create an logind session then working. Two other Systems doesn't and without an logind session I hasn't permission to suspend or mount devices. But I don't find the reason for this. I belive it could be the profile but I don't find something.

xinitrc contains this:

Edit:
pam_ssh was the problem. When its enabled the pams doesn't work with logind.

I guess the older Desktop Environments do not support systemd, and are not able to tell if the user has permission to shut down the machine.

I also have LXDM with MATE and have the same problem. Shutdown and reboot buttons are missing.
Btw, did you have the same problems with consolekit? I don't know if it worked well with consolekit because I just installed Arch Linux last night.

@hyuga

With consolekit everything worked fine. Installing consolekit-git from aur restores the buttons, but is. of course, a stepback.

I got a build error while trying to make consolekit-git from the AUR. Did you experience problems building it?

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

Why are you trying to install consolekit?  For example, you can shutdown with "systemctl poweroff" etc.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

Ok so I pulled up my SSD and popped in a empty drive in my laptop and install Arch latest with kde4. On first boot to KDE4 the Shudown, Restart and Hibernate buttons are missing.

No, I can build consolekit cleanly with no errors. What kind of error are you getting?

cmorgenstern, even though the maintainer didn't include it (and should have) git is required for git packages.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

I'm using MATE with pure systemd (no consolekit installed).
No problems with 'sudo reboot' and 'sudo poweroff' from terminal, but only corresponding buttons are missing in shutdown dialog.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

So far the only way I've been able to solve this is to disable SLiM and enable the KDE4 default KDM login manager. Now when I login, the Shutdown, Reboot and Hibernate buttons all appear in KDE4.

# systemctl disable slim
# systemctl enable kdm

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

@Scimmia

Yes, installing git solves it. Sorry for the stupid question. I occasionally forget that because I've built the system from scratch, I sometimes need to install additional features that come pre-installed with other Linux distros.

Anyway, installing consolekit-git from the AUR restores the buttons to the menu and they all seem to work. I guess this does technically solve the problem, but it's not a good long-term solution, since ideally having those functions controlled by systemd would be better considering that Arch is now dropping all support for things like initscripts and going pure systemd. If anyone comes up with a better solution than this, I'm sure many of us who are experiencing this problem would be pleased.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

I don't want consolekit. For me the buttons only fail to load when i use SLiM, XDM or XDM-arch to login but works fine with KDM. So I switched back to kdm and installed.. pacman -S archlinux-themes-kdm.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

I am using xdm with xdm-archlinux from AUR and have none of your problems.  *Many* posts lately have been complaining about permission, etc. problems related to polkit.service.  Apparently, polkit is not installing properly due to group id numbers.  Please check your logs for incomplete install of polkit due to goup number conflicts.  I recently had this problem due to an old install of gdm using group id 102 so polkit wouldn't install properly.  Once gdm was removed and polkit reinstalled, no more problems encountered. smile

I made the switch to a pure systemd boot, and it seems to have resolved all the issues I had on my laptop.  So far, so good, anyway ...

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

Yup I switched to systemd few days ago. Didn't resolve missing buttons so I did clean re-install of Slim + KDE4. No shutdown icons either. But systemd-analyze is not 150 mins faster at 1800ms, go figure. Luv this stuff. As mentioned icons work with KDM though.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

The upshot may be the removal of lxsession from the repos.

@hydn, this thread is regarding LXDE and lxsession-logout not KDE or KDM.

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

lxsession-logout lacks the "Shutdown" and "Restart" buttons because it expects consolekit, hal or, apparently, ltsp to be present
such behavior is c hardcoded

logind support should be straightforward to implement; meanwhile I would suggest to revert to, say, a gtkdialog script wich calls systemctl poweroff / reboot directly (maybe specific sudoers permissions are needed, too):

modify the Logout entry of your ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/config

[Command]
FileManager=pcmanfm %s
Terminal=lxterminal
Logout=/path-to-your-gtkdialog-logout-script

to handle the lxpanel logout button, to the right, a .desktop file (a copy of your lxde-logout.desktop) is needed, wich execs the gtkdialog logout script

...
Icon=gnome-logout
Exec=/path-to-your-gtkdialog-logout-script
NoDisplay=true

this .desktop file has to be referenced in ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/panel:

...
Plugin {
    type = launchbar
    Config {
        Button {
            id=/path-to-your-logout.desktop
        }
    }
}

Re: [lxde][lxdm]No "Shutdown" buttons after removing consolekit

This should be fixed with lxsession 0.4.6.1-3.  Those who tested it found the functionality restored.
