Shutting down from GDM...

Lately Ive been futzing around with display managers to login/start x...
I think I like GDM the most, however, from the GDM login screen there doesnt seem to be an option to shutdown/restart the system like there is with KDM. Is there something I'm missing? Thankee.

mine didn't show that option by default, but you can easily add it. I think the command is gdmconfig, which will bring up a dialog to configure the login screen. You can change the theme too (I didn't much care for the default sunflower).
you probably have to be root to run the command.

Yep, found it. I actually messed with that config before but completely missed it. Thanks
