There's a way, but it's far more useful to do it with a password.

Install gksu, then use the command "gksudo shutdown -h now" or -r for reboot. This will give you a little popup menu for you tou put your password in. That way you don't accidentally hit reboot and lose everything.


And in the midst of such perfection,
I can't help but feel diseased.

Re: how do i shutdown completely from fluxbox menu?

Yes, i found a method for this (with menu dialog and all xD):

1° Add your user to sudoers with full permissions for shutdown, reboot, and halt commands. In terminal, type:

su 
visudo

and add these lines:

your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/shutdown
your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/halt
your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/reboot

write and save.

2° I use a menu dialog, make with zenity, look like this:

http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/6530/screenshotgcr.png

The scripr, called "logout.sh":

# Filename:      logout.sh
# Purpose:       Simple logout script using zenity
# Authors:       OU812 and anticapitalista for antiX
# Latest change: Sun April 13, 2008.
################################################################################

#!/bin/sh

ans=$(zenity  --width=40 --height=200 --title="Salir" --list  --text "¿Qué deseas hacer?" --radiolist  --column "Elige" --column "Acción" TRUE Logout FALSE Reiniciar FALSE Apagar); #echo $ans


if [ "$ans" = "Logout" ] ; then
   kill -TERM $(xprop -root _BLACKBOX_PID | awk '{print $3}')
fi
if [ "$ans" = "Reiniciar" ]; then
   sudo reboot
fi
if [ "$ans" = "Apagar" ]; then
   sudo halt
fi

change permission and copy to /usr/bin, and  add a fluxbox menu entry for this script You need install zenitiy libraries and thar's all.

Edit: I copy and translate this script from AntiX distro tongue

Then maybe you're having the same issue I had with my Compiz menu, in which case just make a script called shutdown.sh and put the following in there:

#!/bin/bash
gksudo 'shutdown -h now'

Then just put "./shutdown.sh" in the flux menu.

i actually tried that already too but it also wouldnt work

anyway i figured out how to do it

just add theese lines to sudoers like superchango said

your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/shutdown
your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/halt
your_user ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/reboot

then use sudo halt in your menu or use superchango's script, or a custom sctipt or whatever)

thanks for all your help guys

Re: how do i shutdown completely from fluxbox menu?

I'd do this:

[exec] (Shutdown) {xterm -e sudo shutdown -h now}

I think you can bypass all of tat and just change this in your .xinitrc:

exec ck-launch-session startfluxbox
