CentOS/Redhat Restart/Shutdown command?


Hello

What is the command in CentOS 7 that will launch the Restart/Shutdown Dialog window?

Like in Ubuntu there is this command that will display GUI window.
Code:
gnome-session-quit --power-off

There is no such equivalent in CentOS 7. I want that to link in my OpenBox menu to Restart/Shutdown.

Right now I'm using systemctl reboot/poweroff, but want GUI dialog instead.

Thanks

So I guess Gnome is not installed.
How do you start X, automatically at boot or after logged on tty ?
If automatically, what is your Display Manager (gdm, kdm, ...) ?

Why don't you add shutdown or restart to your OpenBox menu ?

Yes, the only DM I've installed is Openbox. I do however installed some gnome packages.
Code:
$ rpm -qa | grep gnome-
gnome-bluetooth-3.20.1-1.el7.x86_64
gnome-themes-standard-3.22.2-2.el7_5.x86_64

gnome-python2-gconf-2.28.1-14.el7.x86_64
gnome-vfs2-2.24.4-14.el7.x86_64
My login manager is lightdm. Also, as you have mentioned I've already tweaked my menu.xml for restart and shutdown.
Code:
$ cat .config/openbox/menu.xml
.
.
<item label="Log Out">
	<action name="SessionLogout">
		<prompt>yes</prompt>
	</action>
</item>
<item label="Restart">
	<action name="Execute">
		<execute>systemctl reboot</execute>
	</action>
</item>
<item label="Shutdown">
	<action name="Execute">
		<execute>systemctl poweroff</execute>
	</action>
</item>
I just want to use gnome default shutdown GUI window Dialog as a better option. That's all.

Shutdown
Code:
init 0
reboot
Code:
init 6
still works in CentOS 7...tho they're not the current/correct/SystemD way to do that.

You're DE doesn't have built-in session control? Hmmm. I'm still learning about various DE's...ran Cinnamon on my CentOS 7 desktop for awhile...now messing with KDE.

I'm not a Gnome user, but I think you need to install and use gnome-session-quit.
