[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#741698: lightdm: shutdown/restart options in XFCE are no longer available

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.10.1-2
Followup-For: Bug #741698

On my Laptop I usually start lightdm only when needed and not when
booting. I am using sysvinit and used the following two methods at
different times to disable autostarting of lightdm:

$ sudo update-rc.d lightdm remove

via rcconf

In both cases I wasn't able to do anything in XFCE which requires
admin rights (shutting down the computer and configuring the network
manager was what I tried). Also when starting up lightdm via
$ sudo service lightdm start
I am shortly shown the X terminal, then my computer switches back to
the terminal where I executed the command. My computer also switches
back to said terminal after logging in via lightdm.

None of these problems appear when lightdm is started automatically at
boot time.
