Default Multiple issues: LDAP/LightDM/SLIM/Unity

Hi there,

I'm facing a couple of issues on 11.10 that are related to one another.
Inititally I tried to let users authenticate themselves against LDAP.
This does work properly with LightDM. The login manager seems to connect
to the LDAP server and even shows the correct name entries for that
user. Upon login though, the screen becomes black for one or two seconds
and than returns to the login screen. I switch login manager to SLIM.
This let's users login to a unity desktop. But then users no longer are
able to reboot/shutdown the machine. After hitting reboot/shutdown the
user is just logged out and is back at the SLIM loginscreen. Any
suggestions?

Hi Stephen

** In SLIM login manager you cannot directly reboot/shutdown from the unity menu, it will just logout the user.
So you can reboot your machine by typing "reboot" at username field and root password in the password field. And* shutdown your machine by typing "halt" at username field and root password..

This is very inconvenient, since I don't want to tell all users the
roor password.
