No button "Shutdown" [SOLVED]

Many weeks I didn't pay attention to this problem:
I have no button "Shutdown" and no button "Reboot" in the window "End session"
Can I fix it?
p.s. I'm working under the user, not root

----------------------------------- SOLUTION -----------------------------------
I found the solution. But it looks strange. Setting up kdm made the necessary buttons to appear.

I have same problem, but do not understand what you did to fix it.

Can you explain?

So. As far as I understand, kde cooperates with kdm a lot. I have just setup the kdm and 3 buttons appeared: shutdown, logoff, and change user (I can make a mistake a bit :) because I'm using Russian locale)

How do I "set up kdm"? I have the same problem (as do a few other people on the ubuntu forums.)

I had just installed it, and everything appeared.

Well that sucks I though I found a fix. I already had kdm installed and I even reinstalled it with no fix.
