Re: Shutdown in one step?

Gnome does but KDE doesn't, although other distro's KDE versions do so there
has to be a way of enabling it, does any body know how too?



Actually I think this has more to do with the Display Manager (gdm,kdm,xdm) than with the Desktop (gnome, kde). On my FC3 system, I'm using KDE 3.3.1 desktop with the KDM display manager. I select "logout" from the KDE main menu and up pops a widget that asks if I want to "End Session", "Stop Computer", or "Restart Computer". Works for me

Is there any graphic equivalent to "shutdown -h now",
eg can I modify the logout screen so that it offers
to shutdown the machine?



This is confusing. Under gnome the logout screen does have a shutdown
option. I assume it is there in KDE also.

Or am I misunderstanding you.
