How do I allow normal users to shutdown/reboot?
I try to shutdown as my user
el but get this response:
el@voyager ~ $ shutdown now shutdown: you must be root to do that! Usage: shutdown [-akrhPHfFnc] [-t sec] time [warning message] -a: use /etc/shutdown.allow -k: don't really shutdown, only warn. -r: reboot after shutdown. -h: halt after shutdown. -P: halt action is to turn off power. -H: halt action is to just halt. -f: do a 'fast' reboot (skip fsck). -F: Force fsck on reboot. -n: do not go through "init" but go down real fast. -c: cancel a running shutdown. -t secs: delay between warning and kill signal. ** the "time" argument is mandatory! (try "now") **
I want to have my user el be able to shutdown the computer, what is the best way to do that?
