Shutdown PC on exit
« on: December 25, 2015, 03:52:13 AM »
Hi

I have a working setup based on Linux Mint 17.3 that starts and launches Attract Mode.

Is there a way to send the shutdown command to Linux with sudo privliges(including password) at the time I exit Attract Mode?


Regards Kristoffer

SOLVED

Change the permissions of the shutdown command:
sudo chmod u+s /sbin/shutdown
Creat a script that runs at boot:

with the following rows:
attract # to start attract mode
shutdown -P now # to shutdown

Try setting AM exit command to:

Code: [Select]
shutdown -s -t 00
I'm using it on my bartop XP machine along with instant sheller from gameex. Works great :)
