Changed login/logout
« on: March 16, 2010, 01:48:42 am »

HP-2133, VL-6-Std, XFCE4

I do not know when it started, however, when logging-in one has to enter now   
the password, when before clicking on the user name the password came
automatically with it.

Further, clicking on the "Quit" applet on the panel it goes now straight to 
the login display of gdm. When before it asked, logout, reboot or halt.

What's the remedy?

Sounds like something with the login manager. Check the part of the xfce control center thing that deals with the login manager. I seem to remember a setting somewhere about the default action to perform when the quit/lock/logout button is clicked.

I don't believe I've ever seen anything in XFce that deals with the login manager. Perhaps in VASMCC? I can't check right now. The "action to perform" when the logout button is selected is available by right-clicking on the icon for Quit, Properties, but the choices are only Quit, Lock, and Quit + Lock Screen.

I don't know what the solution might be.

You can set auto login at the login screen for XFce. Click on Actions and you should see the login option to modify.

Thanks all!

-- There is no more login option on the Actions click. I know there was one before.

-- Could not solve the the problem with the Quit applet. Found as well that clicking
   Menu-Log Out again no choices are given and it went straight to login manager.

Solved this now by removing user and add again. Quit button now giving choices
of Logout, Reboot and Halt.
