Thread: Logout, Turnoff, Restart

  1. #1

    Question Logout, Turnoff, Restart

    First, openSuse 11.4 64bit fresh install, KDE 4.6.0. Clicking on the "Adios" button brings up a window offering the Logout, Turnoff and Restart options. In openSuse 11.3 the Restart option had a drop down menu which allowed one to choose the operating system to restart. This useful feature seems to have disappeared in 11.4. Is there any way in which I can reinstate it?

    There must be a way to get it back, because I do have it, although I am strictly speaking on KDE 4.6.1.

    It is probably that you need to tell KDE about your Bootmanager, e.g. Grub. And the only place that I can find atm where to do that is the Login Manager. You can find that in Personal Settings > Login Screen > Shutdown.

    Maybe it works straight away. Maybe after logging in anew. Maybe not at all.

    My Lord, you are brilliant! It worked first go, and I would never have found out this trick for myself. Thank you!

    Personal Settings > Login Screen > Shutdown.
    ???
    On my system it is System Settings > System Administration > Login Screen; then 'shutdown' tab. Select 'grub' from the dropdown options under Boot Manager, restart KDE.

    That is the same place.

    Agreed, but it wasn't too difficult to work out what his Lordship meant!

    Quite, and big thanks to Lord Em for the pointer, I would not have found it alone either, I just thought that it might be useful to some to clarify the exact sequence.
