Cannot Shut Down Mandrake 9.1


Buddy of mine (Actually a Buddy, not just saying that)...

Installed Mandrake 9.1 and when he clicks "Logoff" It gives him an option to logoff, but not to Turn off computer...

My 9.1 does give the option... Any reason why it is not showing up? Is there a way to configure it?

A fellow coonass! I'm a Baton Rouge boy, myself. Do you and your friend boot up differently? By that, I mean, do one of you boot to X and the other boot to the command line? I seem to remember that option of "shut down" in KDE in Mandrake 9.1 going away once I started booting to the command line instead of X. I know this doesn't really fix the problem, but I think that may be the source.

Are both of your KDEs your default X? Maybe it takes away the shutdown option if you aren't in your default X.... I dunno...just a brainfart.

You should use Mandrake Control Centre > Boot > DrakBoot and select that you do NOT want autologin, because if you do, you are bypassing KDM. Also under Mandrake Control Centre > Hardware (what's it doing there?????) > Display Manager Chooser choose KDM.

Now use KDE Control Centre > System > Login Manager to do autologin.

After a reboot, all should be well.

Your main problem is that you are not using a login manager, but booting straight into X and KDE or GNOME. When you log out, you finally get a login manager (but the default Mandrake one is rubbish) and have to exit from there.

KDM (KDE desktop manager) is the best of them, even if you don't use KDE. You'll need to go into KDE to use KDE Control Centre to configure it though.
