Single click logout in KDE?

I am using Slackware with KDE 2.1.1, and am trying to create a shortcut on the desktop that will log out and return to the KDE login manager, without having to go through 'End KDE Session?' confirmation.

I have tried using 'telinit 4', but this will only work in root, and I am unsure if it is safe to change the permissions of init and telinit. Is there any other way?

Do you just want to click and leave KDE? Do you not want to confirm logout and save session?
If this is the case, go to KDE Control Center ---> select System ---> select K session manager ---> untick the appropriate box.
Hope this helps.

Thanks esteeven, but I was looking fo a way to logout from a shortcut on the desktop (I'm setting up Linux for my mum, so everything needs to be accessable from a single click on the desktop). I think I'll have to change the permissions for telint so it can be run by a user.

Save sessions will restore native KDE apps to the state they were in when you logged out next time you login.

There is an option Confirm logout in K->Control Center->Session as it was pointed by esteeven, just uncheck it and apply changes, after that you can just click start->logout and you're done. And if it is one click action you need there is a logout button on your KDE panel just click it, I see no difference if it is accessable from desktop or panel.
