DSBLogoutmgr(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual	       DSBLogoutmgr(1)

     dsblogoutmgr -- Graphical logout manager

     dsblogoutmgr [-L _lock command_] [-S _suspend command_]
		  [-l _logout command_]	[-r _reboot command_]
		  [-s _shutdown	command_]

     dsblogoutmgr is a Qt utility that allows you to leave your	current	window
     manager-session, reboot, suspend or shutdown your system. Furthermore, it
     supports time-controlled shutdown.

     The following options are available:

     -L	     Defines the screen	lock command. Default "metalock"

     -S	     Defines the suspend command. Default "acpiconf -s 3"

     -l	     Defines the logout	command. Default "fluxbox exit"

     -r	     Defines the reboot	command. Default "shutdown -r now"

     -s	     Defines the shutdown command. Default "shutdown -p	now"

     Commands for the actions can also be defined in
     ~/.config/DSB/dsblogoutmgr/config using variable=value pairs by setting
     the variables lock, logout, shutdown, reboot, and suspend.	 Commands con-
     taining white spaces must be enclosed in double quotes. If	an action is
     defined on	the command line, it is	used instead of	the one	defined	in

     In	order to be able to execute shutdown as	regular	user, you can either
     use sudo(8) (see below), or you can add your username to the operator

	   # pw	groupmod operator -m yourusername

     If	you want to be able to suspend your system as regular user, you	can
     use sudo(8).  Add

	   %wheel  ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/acpiconf *

     to	/usr/local/etc/sudoers,	and define the suspend action accordingly by
     using the -S flag on the command line, or set

	   suspend = "sudo acpiconf -s 3"

     in	~/.config/DSB/dsblogoutmgr/config

     Note: On FreeBSD >= 12, members of	the operator group are allowed to exe-
     cute acpiconf.  Using sudo(8) is not necessary.

   Closing window manager-sessions
	     Users of OpenBox can set the logout action	to "openbox --exit"
	     using the -l flag.

	     Users of Fluxbox can set the logout action	to "fluxbox-remote
	     exit" using the -l	flag. This requires

		   session.screen0.allowRemoteActions: true

	     to	be set in ~/.fluxbox/init.
