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.

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

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
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.
