I have installed kde3 and gnome2 on my box. I use kdm to load desktop
sessions. There is no shutdown option available in gnome-session. How
do I get shutdown & reboot options working in gnome-session.
Please pardon my typo, I am just a kid.
Perhaps you have to uncomment the next line from visudo:
# %users localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
I have always shutdown OPenBSD,linux,solaris is through the
here is some info to help you shutdown your system. really, to use
openbsd or any unix like os is through the cmd line.
I recommend reading the openbsd faq and some real unix books, not
those "learn unix in 10 days "type books, but text books type.
If you're running 4.8 and you have a decent motherboard with ACPI, just
press the power button. This should run a clean shutdown.
Thanks for replying and educating me. I know how to shutdown from
command line or otherwise. There seems to be lack of functionality
with gnome if user opts for different dm. I can tweak it right in
Linux but I am not familiar with BSD userland. I have done this on
openSUSE and Ubuntu. I just cant find gnome-session/logout.c in here.
There I can tweak gnome-session and make it sane.
There is no lack of functionnality.
Read the doc that comes with the packages and you'll see that you need
to enable consolekit to do what you want.
Thanks for reply, I will try that out.
