    Best way to quit KDE ? <RESOLVED>


    I do not get the option to exit KDE, only logout. After selecting logout a login screen appears prompting for Name/pasword to login. What is the normal way to reboot pc from KDE (other than ctrl-alt-backspace from the login) ?

    Thanks.

    You should configure kde to allow a user shutdown. Don't know how exactly though (but the kde configuration center should help). If you can't figure out how to do it, a less elegant solution is open up a terminal, become root, and do # shutdown -h now.
