    Default Shut down, only with root password ?

    I can not say when and why it happened, a few weeks ago when I try to shut down my PC, I have to enter the root password.
    How do I back off without having to use the root password?

    Thanks in advance

    Set the security level to "easy local", either in YaST->Security and Users->Security Center and System Hardening or in /etc/sysconfig/security (PERMISSION_SECURITY).
    Or set DISPLAYMANAGER_SHUTDOWN="all" in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager, there's also an option for that in YaST->Security and Users->Security Center and System Hardening IIRC.

    Thank you, now I can do shutdown without root





    I chose to edit the file in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
    I did not find the options in yast, perhaps due to language Portuguese or my old version of OpenSuse 3.1

    I never edit the displaymanager file before. What caused this change?

    There should be an option for that in the first screen of that YaST module I mentioned.
    But I cannot tell you how it would be called in portuguese...

    This should only happen if you change the security level to "restrictive"/"secure" or even "paranoid".

    The easiest way to get to that setting (and even find in the first place) is to open your /etc/sysconfig editor in YAST.
    Once that applet is open, do a search for "shutdown" and you'll easily find the setting you likely searched for manually.
    Select "All Users" and save your settings.
