System menu and session buttons

Asked by vaal on 2010-07-07

very much like to see in your menu for gnome items from custom menu Ubuntu "Administration" and "options", as well as options shutdown / reboot the machine.

Google Translate text was translated, I apologize for any errors

For »Administration« and »Preferences« please see the blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cardapio/+spec/always-show-administration-and-preferences
We are discussing on how to implement that there.

You can add buttons »Shut Down«, »Log Out« »Lock Screen« to Cardapio via right-click on the applet → Properties → activate »Show session buttons in bottom pane«.
Alternatively, you can also search for »Shut Down«. :)

A strange (?) thing I noticed:

I can't find "Neu Starten" ~Reboot~ when typing it. Would be nice to have it, though....

That’s because restarting is a sub-function of shutting down. Search for »shut down« /»ausschalten«, click it and you can choose.

It would be too dangerous to have a separate »Restart« function that directly works on enter. The use case for restarting is not that important. ;)

Ok,
I agree.

Although I use it more often than Ausschalten.

But as it is a Ubuntu thing, I'm fine with it anyway.

I love Cardapio. ;)

Can you help with this problem?
