How do I run gshutdown as root. In 11.04 , I modified the comand line via the main menu, by adding, su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin before the command line. I can't find an equivalent to 'main menu' in Oneric.
su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin
Open the Dash and find GShutdown. Drag and Drop it from the Dash to your Home folder.
Now open a terminal and run the following command to edit the launcher:
Change the text after Exec= to your new command:
Save the file and close it. Now copy the launcher to your local application folder:
cp gshutdown.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
If you have GShutdown on your Launcher, remove it and then launch GShutdown from the Dash. You should be prompted for your password as you would expect.
