I would like to be able to shutdown without opening the application menu.


Open pcmanfm-qt to /usr/share/applications.

Scroll down till you see the item "Shutdown".

Drag the Shutdown icon to the quicklaunch area of your panel. Ensure you see a little green circle with a + sign before you release the icon onto the quicklaunch area.

Now, if you left-click on the Shutdown icon in the quicklaunch tray, you'll see the shutdown option.
