Hi @ all,

my problem is, that I can not login graphically and also I am not able to use the Xfce4 poweroff / restart GUI buttons as they remain grey, when I start a graphical session with the startx command.

I've already tried to fix my problem with several threads about similiar problems. E.g. I already read https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6848924.html and https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-905296-postdays-0-postorder-asc-start-25.html

Will someone please help me?

My specs are:

Code:

Try either

Code:

login_cmd       exec ck-launch-session startxfce4


or

ck-launch-session startxfce4 in /etc/X11/Sessions/Xfce4.

What I did when I used Xfce (I've since switched to LXDE) was to use ~/.xinitrc and putting exec ck-launch-session startxfce4 there (have to uncomment the right line in slim.conf for that).

Thanks alot! That one fixed the login problem :)

But unfurtunately I still can not use the graphical poweroff / reboot buttons. The only button I can use is the logout button. Can I somehow provide more useful information on this?

I thought ck-launch-session was supposed to take care of that. It's been a while since I used Xfce, but if I come across anything, I'll post it. I'm sure someone will mosey along in a bit and say "hey, do this - presto!"

If x11-misc/slim is compiled with USE="consolekit" it means the ConsoleKit session is started by the Display Manager (SLIM) itself, thus, logically, if you add another ck-launch-session there, it will cause it to run double (2) sessions. That will cause applications to get confused, and things like communication using DBUS between things like xfce4-session, upower, consolekit, and polkit will be broken.

First post of this thread is mostly still accurate: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965-start-0.html
And it mentions SLIM to be one of these Display Managers with internal ConsoleKit support

In fact, we don't have any Display Managers in portage left that don't have this support. Thus, logically, ck-launch-session should only be used when running from console, using eg. startx

I had the same issue as ezio. Until I was able to get some form of error report, thanks to trying lightdm after slim and lxdm failed me, I couldn't find a solution. I finally solved the issue by issuing the following command as root:
Code:
emerge -1 dbus dbus-glib

When I first read the post linked by ssuominen, I only tried to emerge dbus-glib, which apparently wasn't good enough. The solution was buried in such a long thread, I hope this helps in case somebody missed it.

I had this problem too. Turned out I hadn't compiled x11-misc/slim with the "consolekit" USE flag. When I recompiled with that flag and restarted, I had the shutdown etc. options available.
