Re: [trinity-users] Setting up power-off icon

Hi Lisi!

The easy way:

Add this line to /etc/sudoers:

%users ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /sbin/poweroff

You might want to change change "%users" to the name of the user. Otherwise anybody in the "users"-group is allowed to do power off.

Now crate a Shortcut on the Desktop that executes "sudo /sbin/poweroff"

Test ... but be aware, that the session is not saved!
