    Shutting down in XFce


    I can't do it as a regular user. For some reason, it just doesn't let me shutdown. I followed the XFce Manual and appended my sudoer's file so that the users could execute the xfsm-shutdown-helper file.

    I added this line to the sudoer's file:
    Code:
    %users ALL=/usr/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper
    According to the XFce Manual, this is the only way for an user to shutdown and I'm fresh out of ideas. I'll really like to get this working properly.

    Try this:

    Code:
    %users ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper
    if that doesn't work, you can also try:

    Code:
    username  localhostname=NOPASSWD: /usr/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper

    Thanks! Just FYI for anyone that has the same problem, the first one was what worked for me.
