unable to 'shutdown' from x... need to shutdown using 'halt'
i have a strange problem. i am unable to shutdown while i am in x-windows (kde). if i select 'logout' from the k-menu, i get a login screen without any shutdown options (restart, shutdown, etc). i don't see a list of users to select from either. so i have been shutting down by using the 'halt' command from a terminal window.
