Create new choose -name.desktop file on your desktop or in /home/guest/.local/share/applications and paste:

For shutdown:

Code: Select all

Name=Shutdown
Name[pl]=Wyłącz komputer
Exec=/usr/bin/dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop
Icon=system-shutdown
Terminal=false
Type=Application
For reboot:

Code: Select all

Name=Reboot
Name[pl]=Uruchom ponownie
Exec=/usr/bin/dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Restart
Icon=system-restart
Terminal=false

Found it in Auto Shutdown NG extension for Firefox.

If you use changes=EXIT: cheatcode and want shutdown without saving changes do:
add

Code: Select all

chown guest:guest /mnt/live/tmp
line to '/etc/rc.d/rc.local',
create exit-no-changes.sh file in /home/guest/.local/share and paste

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
mv /mnt/live/tmp/changes-exit /mnt/live/tmp/changes-exit-no && /usr/bin/dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop
than create shutdown-no-changes.desktop file and paste

Code: Select all

Name=Shutdown without saving changes
Name[pl]=Wyłącz komputer bez zapisywania zmian
Exec=/home/guest/.local/share/exit-no-changes.sh
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Tested for LXDE but should work also for XFCE and GNOME.
You can change Name, Icon and add Categories to these .dektop files.
