I've a very strange problem. I can suspend, hibernate or logout from lxde-logout menu but there is no option of shutdown or reboot the system. Do you have any solution for my problem?

Make sure hal is installed.

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy hal
hal:
  Installed: 0.5.14-6
  Candidate: 0.5.14-7
  Version table:
     0.5.14-7 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main i386 Packages
 *** 0.5.14-6 0

Yes, I've the hal instaled. The problem is that before I've had installed hal I could only logout. But after installation of hal I can not only logout but also suspend, hibernate. Sadly I cannot shutdown or reboot the system from lxde-logout menu.

I see the same problem in Fedora Rawhide. I believe it's related to the problems with lxpolkit.
