I recently installed xfce4 and I'm really happy with it. I don't like to use login managers like gdm and I generally just use "startx". HOwever, since I don't use an gdm, the shutdown/logout/reboot button in xfce has shutdown/reboot greyed or disabled. So basically it just logs me out and stops x. does anyone know how to attach a shell script to the button to enable the shutdown or reboot? maybe a similar workaround?

thanks,

Take a look here http://www.xfce.org/index.php?page=documentation&lang=en#logout

15. How do I enable the shutdown/reboot action in the session-manager logout dialog?

You have to allow the user(s) to execute $installdir/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper with sudo. Please install sudo, and refer to xfce4-session and sudo documentation.
