Thanks for the reply. I believe I saw that URL when STFW, but passed it by.
I've created a file:
2016-12-27 19:43:22 toor at t7400 ~
And I've added my user name to the operator group:
2016-12-27 19:44:25 toor at t7400 ~
# grep operator /etc/group
I then shut down, booted, and logged in, but the Shut Down and Restart
buttons on the Xfce menu -> Log out dialog are greyed out.
Any suggestions for getting shutdown and restart working in Xfce?
How about XDM?
