Angry shutting down kde 3


WHY does KDE 3 only allow me to log out? I want to restart and shutdown!

I found that I can call poweroff and reboot in the /sbin/ folder, but I have to run them as root, which requires typeing in the root password. Gnome can reboot and shutdown fine. How can I get KDE 3 to do it? Can I call Gnome's functions to do it? Can I set global permissions to poweroff and reboot? (it's a person desktop, so I'm not worried about setting the permission).

please please please help!

KDE is only a GUI, buddy. What distro do you have?

After you log out, do you have a graphical login? If yes, it must have options for shutting down and rebooting.

I don't want to do it that way though! I want to be able to shutdown or reboot from inside KDE like you can do it from inside Gnome.

can't i just chmod poweroff and reboot? what arguments do i give it if so?

Maybe you should open your Kcontrolcenter, go to systemadministration, select login-management (or -manager) and enable all users to shutdown the system locally.
