View Full Version : [ubuntu] fluxbox and xdm

July 1st, 2010, 09:03 PM
i am having problems getting my pc to shut down after installing xdm. before i install xdm and starting fluxbox using startx, the shutdown and reboot options that i have put in my menu work fine. after installing xdm they don't work anymore. does anyone have any ideas.

here are the entries for shutdown in my menu:
[exec] (Reboot) {sudo /sbin/shutdown r now}
[exec] (Shutdown) {sudo /sbin/shutdown h now}

here is what i added to the sudoers file:
<user> ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/shutdown,/sbin/reboot
