I have a Xmonad + xfce4 logout question.

Hello, I'm trying to add a command that gives me the "Log Out, Shutdown, Reboot, Suspend, Hibernate" dialogue box that you get when pressing "Log Out" in the xfce4-menu.

The xfce4-menu's "Log Out" won't work currently because it's using the Xmonad log out (which only logs out of the window manager and straight back to my Slim login screen).


I tried to add this to my custom keys but no luck (my other custom keys all work):

((modMask .|. shiftMask, xK_q), spawn "xfce4-session-logout")

I'm wondering if "xfce4-session-logout" was the correct command for Xfce 4.6.1, and I also tried "xfce4-session-logout --halt".


Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

EDITED:

While I'm still hoping to fix this, I did find a temporary solution by using the "halt" command in the Slim login prompt: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sli … _from_SLiM

Re: I have a Xmonad + xfce4 logout question.

The xfce logout dialog should work if your ~/.xinitrc file looked like this

#!/bin/sh
#
# ~/.xinitrc
#
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
    [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
  done
  unset f
fi

exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch startxfce4

Re: I have a Xmonad + xfce4 logout question.

I'm having the same problem with Debian 32-bit, lack of the XFCE logout dialog window.  I did not have an .xinitrc file in my home directory, so I created one containing the above information, the logout dialog window only appeared the first time after I rebooted the computer.  Subsequent logouts went straight to the gdm login screen when Log Out was selected.  So, the file didn't work and has been removed.

I don't think you need that if you use GDM. Must be some other problem you're having because it should work OOTB.
