OK, I use XFCE as my default DE (and I love it!), but the only annoying thing is that I cannot shutdown or reboot directly from XFCE even when logged in as root. I only get the option 'Quit current session' then I have to reboot or wtvr from the shell. It's not a massive problem, but it is a bit annoying...I'm guessing its something to do with permissions but I'm not too good with those so if anyone would care to help... :) Thanks in advance...

because you need to be root to do this, yor need sudo
Code:
emerge -av app-admin/sudo
visudo


put you user in the sudoers file, using visudo
