Change the behaviour of Alt Control Backspace to shutdown machine
Posted on 2004-11-25
Hi I am seting up a web kiosk, that uses a kiosk user to start a cut down web browser. The only shortcut keys that work are the Control + Alt + Back space which logs the user out and brings back the machine to a log in screen. Actually what I would like is for the machine to shut down instead of going back to the log in screen.
The kiosk is started by automatically logging in the kiosk user, and having a xsession script in their home folder that starts firefox...
while true ; do
I dont fully understand what it is doing but it works!! Seems to start a System default session (its not gnome so i guess it may be twm), and when i hit alt contol back space it finishes that session and go's back to the log in screen. I would rather that users didnt get that screen and it would just shutdown.
