    you can just type
    Code:
    shutdown -h now
    as root in the terminal.

    If you don't need the warn anyone that the system is going down, "halt" shuts down with a bit less typing

    Did you try putting "sudo" first?

    Isn't there a menu option in kde for shutting down? Look for something like "log out" and you should get some options.

    Do either give any error output?

    In the menu, when you take the option to logout theer should be a box that comes up with options such as shutdown in KDE.

    Calm calm
    If you read what dylunio said again you'll see that he said that there should be an option to shut down when you choose the option to logout of KDE, and he's right. There should be -- if there isn't on your system, then that's what we have to work on.

    Also, the console commands will work if you run them as root
    Code:
    su -
    <your root password here>

    yes, you need to be root before you try the shutdown command, i have this problem aswell in slackware. Where in KDE theres only the end session option, if you change the default init to 4 so it boots kde automatiacally i found that there was a restart and a shutdown option that worked perfectally fine, i have no idea why this happened
