Adding programs to menus and giving some root priv.
I have a current Debian Linux installed (64 bit) and noticed that at least one of the items I use is no longer in the menu. When I click on my username at the top of the screen there used to be an entry to do a shutdown of the machine. It is no longer there, so I would to 'restore' it to the previous entry. I can only assume that I somehow clicked on it and removed it.
It comes back to the general idea of how is a menu populated and the command built for the menu to function.
I have done some things that require files to be in the system area of the machine and using the 'files' GUI is handy. Is there some way to invoke this with root powers? I would hope I could add a line to some flat file and have this work, but don't know where to look this up.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, will keep my eye open.
