A way to shutdown from KDE?


I'm using Fedora Core 2 with KDE as my WM. I also load a Gnome welcome screen to log into. I've noticed that Gnome had an option to reboot, shutdown or simply log off. KDE only gives me the option (form the main menu, anyway) to quit session and return to the login screen. Is there a way to initiate the shutdown sequence from KDE? Thanks in advance!

To shutdown type poweroff
You can make a new entry in kmenu or an icon on your desktop that runs this command

That's just another setting ... have a look in the
kontrol panel, either System Administration or
Session Control ... my wife's machine asks her
when she logs out of KDE whether she wants
to log-out, restart or shutdown


Cheers,

Run -> kcontrol (no idea what it's called, really,
I don't use KDE ;})

from a console within KDE you can type
Code:
poweroff -h
or
Code:
shutdown -h now

I use mandrake - if you set it to boot into KDE (verses into text), i am able to just select "Logout..." from the menu and it gives me three options.. to shutdown, reboot or logout.

you can cheat, open rvxt, then type
su
[password]
init 0

or

sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now

you can make a batch file, then an icon shortcut on your desktop, these are all hacks, but they work. In mandrake you have from the taskbar, system, configure, kde, login manager that allows you to set how it shutsdown and starts up i.e. autologin of a user straight to kde and shutdown from logout straight to powerdown
