 Suggestion

If you're using KDM this is already possible. When you click "Logout" it will present you with "End Session Only", "Turn off computer", and "Restart computer". If you were using GDM or XDM though, I guess this might be useful.

What might make this more useful though is if you could present a restart option with boot images to select from. This is presented in KDM, but not in the logout screen.

I will update the description of the script :).

 Scripts seem off

It looks like there are several references to /home/juanma in the scripts that prevent this from working (i.e. paths to /home/juanma/kshutdown, /home/juanma/icons/icon.png, etc.)

I'm editing them right now to see if I can get it to work anyway since the important part is the kshutdown script. BTW, great idea for a menu item; it's silly having to do sudo halt everytime I want to shut my computer down...

Just a quick addendum: I had to fix the paths as mentioned in my previous comment, then I had to setuid root on the kshutdown script and point the path to /sbin/poweroff (I'm not sure if I *had* to do that, but I did a couple of things while I was fixing it.) Also, I edited the shutdown.desktop file in ../.kde/share/applnk/shutdown.desktop and removed the generic name entries so it just says "shutdown" in my Kmenu.

Anyway, it works like a charm now. Pretty cool. :]

thanks for your comments :), im very happy about you are using the script
I will check the scripts for the /home /juanma/ references , and try to clean the code ....

About /sbin/poweroff, i have fedora and the original script run fine, but i see that you are using other distro ... and think that /sbin/poweroff works well too.

Thanks again :)

if you want, send me your modified scripts and the name of your distro so i will ckeck it out and i will upload it too.

 doesn't work

I really want to use this, but when i start the script, and select YES at the prompt, nothing happens.
Do i have to be root that this works? I'm using SuSE 9.0 and KDE 3.1.4 and GDM. I hope somebody can help me.

Hi;
I think that the problem is the /sbin/poweroff file.
androu999 have discoverded that you have to do

chmod 4755 /sbin/poweroff

So that non-root users can use the kshutdown script.

So i now know that Debian and Suse needs to chmod poweroff file, then I will update the readme and make some changes too.

THanks to Chris for the chmod trick :)

Thanks for you advise, but i had to do some other changes, until the script worked.

1. chmod 4755 /sbin/poweroff (you advise!)
2. in your install.sh file, i had to change /applnk-redhat/ to /applnk/ because the else-thing doesn't work.
3. in the kpoweroff-file you need to add /sbin/ in front of poweroff

though i had to do these things, your idea is great.

 save session?

 
 by ahippie on: Apr 16 2004
 
Score 50%

The script doesn't work at the moment on my Debian box, but I think it's a great idea. I use Libranet's Debian, which defaults to GDM2 which I like very much.

The big question is, does this script (when it works) trigger the kde save session? I really like coming back to the box the way I left it.

Thanks!

Why is your readme a shell script?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
