How to add a "Reboot to Windows" option to KDE logout menu?
 
Hello!
I've recently found out about "lilo -R" (I've always hated waiting for Lilo after reboot but never thought that a solution could exist :-) ), but I would like to avoid typing it in a shell windows. It would be easier if I just had a "Reboot to Windows" option in the KDE logout menu.
The question is: do I have to recompile KDE or there is a simpler way (i.e. scripts)?
Thanks!

script it:

Code:

lilo -R whatever
sudo init 0

init 0 is halt, he probably wants init 6 (reboot). Most distros offer a way to reboot without using init, though. A "reboot" command. You could also use "shutdown -r now".

Besides that, I guess he's asking about HOW to modify the kde menu, and not how to do this (since he already says he knows about lilo -R on the first post of the thread).

simopal6, do you use kde 3.x or 4.x? I guess this will be different in either version. I haven't kde installed right now so I can't test. It should be something that you can configure in a .desktop file or something like that.

However, if you can't figure out how you can try a couple of things:
  • suse does this I think, with grub, but it can be worth it to check how kde is configure in suse to do that
  • use a desktop icon or a button in the panel, and link your script to that
