Logout menu options configuration


I am setting up a computer running Kubuntu 7.04 and would like to turn off the Suspend and Hibernate options that are given when a user selects "Logout" from the K-menu. Is there a configuration file somewhere that I can edit to remove these two options? The only option I know of is the "offerShutdown" option in the ksmserverrc file, but that removes all the shutdown options including the shutdown and restart options along with the hibernate and suspend options. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi melkevizth, Fuzzo,

In case you are speaking of the mini-program located at the right side of the task bar: Have you tried to right-click on that button? You should see an option "Configure session manager" or similar. When you click there, you should get a configuration panel where you can disable these options.

I have another issue in this area: I WANT these buttons to be present and I have enabled them - but they don't show up. My OS is OpenSUSE 10.3, KDE version is 3.5.7 "release 72" - when it comes from the installation DVD, maybe there were some update I am not aware of (I'm sitting in front of a different OpenSUSE 10.3 system now, not mine, this one works).

Has anybody had this? Is this a known issue? Maybe not a KDE issue but a SUSE issue.

I'm getting seriously annoyed by not having these options, because I must wait until the logout and shutdown of KDE is finished and kdm presents a new login screen where I can click on shutdown -
instead of doing a logout & shutdown in one step, which would be faster AND (way more important) I can switch off the screen immediately.

Any and all hints & bits of knowledge/ideas are greatly appreciated!

edit: I just found a hint in this thread. KDM ist running here but I'm not sure about my own system. I'll check that some hours later today.
