    Default Action button bugged

    Hi,

    I have just installed openSuse 11.4 on my Acer Aspire 5738Z.

    When I click on the action button included in the bottom panel, I expect to open a windows asking me if I want to shut down, restart, or log off. But unfortunately, when I click on it, I am not offered any option and I get immediately logged off.

    I removed the button from the panel and installed it again, but it still dysfunctions.

    Does anyone have any idea ?

    environment are you using?

    try right clicking on the desktop and selecting "Leave"

    I am using XFCE.

    The right-click on the desktop does not have any "Leave" option.

    i've never used XFCE for long enough to remember how you are supposed to
    close the machine using it....are there no docs for it?

    is there a main menu button? if so, click on it and see if there is a
    way to "Leave", Exit", "Shutdown", "Logout" etc etc etc..

    what i'm saying is: i have NO idea why your "Action button" isn't giving
    you the action you expect....but, i expect the documentation for that
    desktop environment might give you some hints on other ways to shutdown
    OR how to configure the "Action button" to do what you wish it to do..

    well, you can always (i guess) open a terminal, become root and do a
    "shutdown now"

    I have a default xfce 11.4 install (by default I mean what you get when you
    choose xfce as de in the installer and change nothing else) in a virtual
    box.
    When i started it now and click on this exit (the symbol looks like exit)
    button it shows a dialog with all options.

    @Endash: If you right click on that button, what options do you see to
    configure it? I can select there several options like "Log out dialog", "Log
    out", "Hibernate" ...
    The option "Log out dialog" gives the dialog to choose from when the button
    is clicked, "Log out" for example has the behaviour you described.
