How to shutdown the computer system when striking the Power switch?
I have a Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 computer system connected in to my TELEVISION. I make use of the command line to supervise it.
Now when I struck the power switch it simply opens up a Logout screen.
Just how can I set it up to make sure that I can close it down by striking the power switch ? I recognize it has something to do with acpi or acpid.
I desire response to be command-line just as I do not have any kind of key-board or computer mouse attached to that computer system.
Isn't there a means to change the default actions of the xfce4 power supervisor when pressing the power switch?
Additionally as opposed to making use of the GUI to do so, can I do it by creating/modifying an arrangement documents?
jbowtie had an intriguing solution yet I can not locate the xfce4-power-manager. xml documents. If a person recognizes where to locate that documents or just how to create it, I would certainly be interested.
When you struck the power switch, the manuscript
/etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh is called. So one alternative is to change this manuscript to simply call the
shutdown manuscript, bypassing the power monitoring daemon. This functions throughout all circulations and also settings that I recognize of.
Given that you're making use of Xubuntu, you can nonetheless simply transform the setup 'power - button - activity' in
xfce4-power-manager.xml to the shutdown activity - the default value is the ask activity.
You are without a doubt appropriate concerning ACPI.
