Bug Description

I have a clean install of 14.04 server and install lxdm and lxde. I was unable to shutdown/reboot the machine due to an issue. Attempting to shutdown the machine generated an error "GDBus.error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDeined:operation not permitted"

To resolve this issue I had to manually add
session required pam.systemd.so" to /etc/pam.d/lxdm (this file is provided by lxdm)

To reproduce
1. Install a clean14.04 server and install lxdm and lxde
2. In the bottom right corner of the screen, click the little power icon and click shutdown

Observed: Error as described above

After editing /etc/pam.d/lxdm execute the above steps again and the machine will shutdown successfully.
