Thread: how to shutdown Gnome directly without getting exited into the login screen?

    Default how to shutdown Gnome directly without getting exited into the login screen?

    Hi all,

    I am running Opensuse 11.3 which had the KDE desktop loaded by default. I have since installed the Gnome desktop which I access via the log in screen whenever I want to use it.

    One thing that is annoying me is that whenever I load gnome I am unable to shut down the computer directly from the gnome panel.

    When I click the shutdown button, I want the computer to shut down, but rather gnome exits into the login screen and it is from there that I need to click the shutdown button in order to shutdown the computer.

    Is there a way to avoid this and be able to shutdown from the gnome panel?

    Please note, I do not want to uninstall KDE as a solution, I would like the flexibility of having both desktops.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Regards,
