No not yet.
First of all, I use XFCE (so neither Gnome, nor KDE).
Upon X logout, I get the the confirmation screen
whether I really want to logout, but also buttons
to restart or shutdown the PC; the last part I want
to block for regular users, but that seems to be
nearly impossible in Fedora....

I hoped that the KDM login manager also has this for
logout, but that does not seem to be the case, unless
you use also KDE as the session manager.

I really have to disable the possibility that a
regular user accidentally shutsdown the system,
no matter what desktop manages he/she is using.
How can that be done in Fedora?

Thanks,
Rob.

Take a look at the Configuring Console Access,
