Re: pm-utils by default on Xfce for suspend/hibernate

I have PC with Debian 9 "stretch" x86_64 + Xfce and I never needed to have pm-utils installed, but hibernation\suspend feature works normally through xfce4 GUI once I set up all prerequisites for hibernation to work (such as at least working swap and initramfs resume variable). I also removed packages such as "uswsusp", "hibernate". I have used them previously, but now they are unnecessary for hibernation to work on my computer.

How you start Xfce DE and did you installed "xfce4-power-manager" package?
You've said hibernation works when you trigger it manually, so check if hibernation works via systemd:
    $ systemctl hibernate

I means that xfce4-session-logout --suspend does not work for example.

But pm-suspend or pm-hibernate works perfectly.

And I can launch them as user because I edited my /etc/sudoers file with:

my_user  ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pm-hibernate
my_user  ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pm-suspend

So I would like to make pm-utils tools the default ones for
suspend/hibernate in Xfce. pm-utils commands should be triggered when
clicking "suspend/hibernate" on the xfce logout window.

How can I do that?

With kindest regards, Alexander.
