That would be appreciated, also from my side. I found it a bit strange
yesterday, when I reinstalled debian on a laptop, that I couldn´t login as
root graphically, and also that as a normal user I can´t shutdown or reboot
graphically or in text. Only via su.

Also, how can one get out of the whole x system under Debian? To get back into
text mode? I also haven´t found a method of booting into text.
