Question LogOut Shutdown restart Scripts for openbox

Hi masters.

I have a problem which I could not find any solution for.

I have installed my Linux only with openbox and I use LightDM for Display Manager.
As far as I know all of these logout shutdown restart suspend scripts are depend on GDM and as far as LightDM goes; there is no script for that.
If there is any script without dependency for GDM or if there is any script which works with LightDM please paste it here and explain a little about its function.

It sounds like you want to add a few entries into the menu that pops-up when you right-click on the desktop in OpenBox. If that's true, then visit this site (which details how to add things to that menu).

Also, as far as commands like 'shutdown' and 'reboot' are concerned, you can inject those commands into the menu directly. For something like a 'logout', you might have to dig a little deeper into the documentation.
