Shutdown command

RH 72 with Ximian GNOME - all current updates

Under the Ximian menu panel (top of the screen) the is the System menu and
under that there is Log Out.  I was wondering what command this invokes.  I
want to create a launcher for my desktop (with a different icon) and all I
can do is drag this to the desktop keeping the current icon (which, if you
must know is hard to see with my way cool wallpaper).  I could us gshutdown,
but I don't like the window (as well as the options) that gets displayed.
Anyone know what the command is?

Have a look at man 8 halt - several useful things in there.

Gnome Usenet Groups

There aren't any newsgroups devoted to gnome.

Has anyone ever tried getting a gnome usenet group started ( ie
comp.windows.x.gnome ? )?

I know it is a long process.

I was just curious to see how feasible it is........if anyone tried it
and struck out or not.

Not at all what I am looking for.  Halt?  I'm looking for the command that
is run when you click the Log Out button.  The one that brings up the nice
"Really log out?" dialog box where you can select and action of Logout, Shut
Down, or Reboot, and then click Yes, No, or Help.  I'm not trying to go to
halt and bypassing a log out!

Desktop Giude

I just built gkrellm (Performance monitoring tool).  How do I get it to stick to every workspace in my desktop
guide?  

Running gnome 1.4/solaris 8

Thanks in advance!

Re: Desktop Giude

You can use the gnome-session plugin available from gkrellm's page to
achieve this.

Gnome 1.4 panel has no memory

Dear People

I'm using Gnome 1.4 on SuSE Linux 7.2.

Problem: the panel refuses to remember added applets.  For example, if I
right click on a panel and choose

Panel | Add to panel | $anything

the chosen object is added to the panel.  However, next time I log on,
it has disappeared.  Choosing 'Save current session' from the Control
Centre has no effect.

Please can anyone answer any of the following questions:

1.  Is this a 'known bug' which has been fixed and if so which packages
should I update?

2.  In which files are panel properties saved (especially panel applets)
and (how) can I change them manually (e.g. with a text editor)?  I've
trawled through the ~/.gnome* directories to no avail.

Any leads at all would be appreciated.  If I am posting to the wrong
list, or if more information is needed please let me know.  If there's
an FM I should R (beyond the user's guide) again please let me know.

Thanks

Ivan Uemlianin

Help, xscreensaver won't unlock on Sol8

Hello all,
 I'm running Ximian's version of GNOME on Sol8. I'd
recently updated xsceensaver to the latest distro
4.01, which apparently requires PAM auth. Now
everytime I lock my screen, it won't take my password
to unlock. I'm forced to telnet in and kill the
daemon.
 Further digging shows that PAM implementation on
Solaris is different to that of Linux. In particular
the xscreesaver is looking for pam_pwdb.so module,
which is missing in Solaris. Sun happens to use
pam_unix.so.1 instead to achieve the same function.
 Is there a way to disable PAM on the xscreensaver or
fix my problem?

Thanks
Gary

Re: Help, xscreensaver won't unlock on Sol8

You could change the PAM files for xscreensaver (/etc/pam.d/xscreensaver
or /etc/pam.conf), and replace the pwdb entries with pam_unix.so.

Re: Help, xscreensaver won't unlock on Sol8

Sean thanks for your reply.

 In fact I did try doing that, and to no avail. I'd
even tried removing /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver, thinking
that there's a conflict, and that didn't help. But I
keep getting a password incorect message in the log.
Here's a clip of the xscreensaver output to log.

xscreensaver: 13:49:01: prompting for password.
