No shutdown, reboot or start session option


In KDE, the log out menu usually has the options to logout, shut down, reboot, or start new session; But I'm only getting the logout option.

I assumed it was a security thing (I saw simmilar behavior under mandrake at high security settings), so I checked the ususal suspects. No dice.

Then I thought it may be a bug, or normal behavior. The later, I doubt.

Anyone else have this prob? Any ideas?

install:
FC4 x86 DVD, Installed everything. did a update. SELinux is on. No real modifications (yet), just the desktop has been customized, and some packages from the default repos. (was same before and after)

Are you using KDM or GDM. If you are using the GNOME Display Manager, KDE will not show the options you mentioned in your post.

Possable, I see 2 procs called gdm-binary. I'll look into how to switch to kdm(?).

Any pointers? My login looks Gnome-ish. is this what's invoking it?

If you have gdm running then you won't have the logout options. To change to kdm, edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop as follows,
Code:
DESKTOP="KDE"
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"
Note new versions of KDM look like GDM.

Thanks. That gave me shutdown and reboot.. but fast user switching is gone.
I was able to edit /etc/kde/kdm/Xservers to:

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 vt7
:1 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 vt8
:2 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :2 vt9
:3 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :3 vt10
:4 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :4 vt11
:5 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :5 vt12
:6 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :6 vt13

... That gave me the abilty to "startx -- :1" etc to get another desktop (for who's logged in the shell at the time), then I can ctrl-alt-Fx around but still not perfect. I think it's 'cause they're perm, not reseved... will dig more...

[EDIT]
Oh, about the "looks like gnome" thing... even when kde and gnome are themed the same.. etc.. I can tell the difference. Maybe in the rendering, or palette or something, but it has a different look/feel.


[EDIT 2]
I tried every version of reserve I could think of... no dice.
