Hi. I would like to enable gnome shutdown (and reboot) as regulart user. Now only logout works, so I need to logout and then shutdown from gdm.. Are you sure you want to log out? Action:
( ) Logout
(*) Shutdown
( ) Reboot
How? Thank you.

If you're using a new enough version of GDM and gnome-session, such an option is presented (as long as it's not configured to be disallowed; I think it's allowed for local users by default).

Yeah. You need gnome 2.6 at least, i think.

I'm still waiting for it to show up in debian testing :(

~$ apt-cache showpkg gdm
Package: gdm
Versions:
2.4.4.7-3
.....

Umm, I have that logout window with logout, rshutdown and reboot options.



But they don't work. They all only logs out to gdm login. I have Gnome 2.6.2 and GDM 2.4.4.7.

How to make shutdown option to shutdown computer, noit just logout? Google didn't help much, I found something about creating /etc/pam.d/shutdown but didin't manage to get effect.
