What do you mean by shutdown KDE? I am not using KDE but I guess there is a button to exit. If you started KDE via 'startx' you return to the prompt. Otherwise you probably return to a graphical logging screen. You can also kill your XServer by pressing STRG+ALT+Backspacke, but this won't save your settings so use only when KDE gets locked.

There is no exit button to exit kde. Does anyone know how to create a script to do so?

You should just be able to go to the K menu and setect 'Logout'.

You should then have the options to shutdown, reboot or log in as a different user.

If you only have the option to log in as a different user, then you are using the Gnome Display Manager at startup. If all you want the shutdown options in KDE, you need to use the KDE Display Manager.

To do this add the following line to you /etc/sysconfig/dektop file:

DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"

Then restart your computer. When you get back into KDE, you should have the shutdown, reboot options when you select log off.
