There are also options for suspend/hibernate, but they require kernel
support. I will be updating pm-utils today to document that.
As far as power off and reboot, let me document what I know so far.
Window managers: twm, fluxbox, iceWM, openbox, sawfish
-- None of these has anything except exit/logoff
The only one I've really investigated so far is xfce from startx
(runlevel 3). There, the problem is that it needs consolekit and that
uses pam to start a session from login. Using that, do NOT use
ck-launch-session. It might work without PAM if you DO use
ck-launch-session, but I can't check that without removing PAM and that
would be error prone.
I'm not sure if ssh-askpass gets involved here or not.
I will try to test sddm with xfce today and see if I can get that
I will then build lxde and LXQt because they should be fairly quick and
test them out. Then I'll tackle kf5/plasma5. Last will be kde4.
Overall, this has been a difficult release cycle. First we were late
getting started due to waiting for an upstream release. Then we are
running into this complex permissions stuff. I hope to finish up by the
first of October. We should be able to make that.
