* adding my xbmc user to the sudoer to allow shutdown/halt/reboot without password
* installed polkit and tried various custom configurations for my xbmc user
I have used successfully these two methods with other releases but this time nothing worked.
Some questions for the forum:
(1) some suggestions on how to make shutdown work?
(2) to help me find a solution does anyone know what mechansim does xbmc actually use to do shutdown?
Some more information regarding my installation:
* Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit server (so no window manager)
* ubuntu repository xbmc (installs Eden)
There are no ppa's in my sources - only standard Ubuntu.
xbmc is run as user xbmc with --standalone using xinit
Clicking on the "power button" on bottom left gives me the options (this is with no polkit installed):
* Power off System
* Customer shutdown timer
Clicking on "Power off System" always leads to a restart of XBMC.
Here is a fragment of the xbmc.log
