Re: Summary: logout/halt/reboot as ordinary user, gnome logout button?
Sorry, I didn't followed the whole discussion, but I have solved
the problem in this way:
/usr/local/bin> ls -l halt reboot shutdown
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 26 Aug 31 20:13 halt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 28 Aug 31 20:13 reboot
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 33 Aug 31 20:14 shutdown
/usr/local/bin> cat halt
/usr/local/bin> cat reboot
/usr/local/bin> cat shutdown
sudo /sbin/shutdown $@
/etc/sudoers contains all users who are allowed to do the described
tasks. Put the scripts from /usr/local/bin into a menu structure
or a button and you are ready.
Hope this wasn't suggested before.
