#2 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » (Solved) Power button does not bring up exit prompt » 2011-07-07 19:08:30

Thanks machinebacon, I got the power off button to work (using <command>gdm-control --shutdown</command> in rc.xml) but my previous underlying problem still persists. I may start a seperate thread for this if there are no initial ideas behind it. I can't remember when it began occuring but perhaps a couple of weeks after I installed #! each time I attempt to properly shutdown or reboot I am sent back to the login screen.

I have edited rc.xml a few times in order to add XF86AudioRaiseVolume/XF86AudioLowerVolume/XF86AudioMute and XF86Sleep (which still doesn't work because I haven't been able to enable it in visudo - another thread another time)

Nonetheless, I cannot pinpoint any editing that may have compromised the proper function of shutdown and reboot in openbox. The only thing I can think of that has any relevance is that when I added the XF86 commands mentioned above I pasted them *after*

<keybind key="A-C-q">
      <action name="ShowMenu">

In the example you placed XF86Shutdown between this keybind and the W-space keybind. Do the XF86 keys necessarily have to be placed between keybind W-space and keybind A-C-q? My XF86Audio keys (Raise, Lower, and Mute) function perfectly even though they are pasted after A-C-q.

What may be causing commands for shutdown and reboot to take me back to the GDM login screen?

In what dir should these scripts be created in, such as the one Tunafish posted? Also, what does it mean to change other scripts accordingly, as mentioned for panels and openbox-logout?

Recently, exiting through openbox (both shutdown and reboot) have lead me back to the login screen. The only way to turn off #! is to hold down the power button so I'm hoping that implementing these scripts will remove that problem.

its open source and available for multiple platforms, including linux. Had it on Ubuntu in the past and just installed it on crunchbang. Don't know if it is better than chkrootkit but its description seems to suggest it has more features.

"...a powerful correlation and analysis engine, integrating log analysis, file integrity checking, Windows registry monitoring, centralized policy enforcement, rootkit detection, real-time alerting and active response."

thanks I looked at many of those scripts and made my own variation. However, this problem persists now that I want to customize other aspects of crunchbang. For example, I'm trying to install the GDM themes I found at but keep getting the same error readout. Whenever I attempt to extract tar.gz files from any of the sites I get this problem but not with any other website.

I've been configuring numerous aspects of crunchbang since I got it last week and now I've arrived at customizing conky. I downloaded conky-colors and when it came to extracting it I get this error readout:

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I am able to extract all other .tar.gz files without this problem occuring. I couldn't find any solutions elsewhere on the web so any help would be appreciated, thanks!
