KDE - prevent user from restarting


I’m really more of a server admin, but will be working on some “public” desktops.

Is there any way to get rid of the KDE thing that allows a non-root user to shutdown or reboot the machine, or require group membership to reboot?



If you’re using KDE 4 then just open Configure Desktop (Personal Settings) click the advanced tab then under System choose Login Manager. You have to provide the root password so normal users can’t change this. Then go to the shutdown tab and change local shutdown to root only.
