Hi! When executing ‘user_shutdown’ , a window pops up asking the user if they are sure if they want to shut down that is on a timer (dialog timeout). Can I have the same behaviour on the ‘user_reboot’ window? Currently ‘user_reboot’ also asks for user confirmation, but without the timer, so the device doesn’t reboot until the button is clicked.
I would ideally like it to work in the same way we shut down our devices every evening to save energy, see igelcommunity.slack.com/archives/C8GP9JHQE/p1579779725199800?thread_ts=1579532637.086800&cid=C8GP9JHQE
This adds a basic script that calls user_shutdown which is executed using a cron job
In System, Registry:
should help you out or at least point you in the right direction😄
Thanks, but the dialogue with timer does not seem to work for the reboot, only for shutdown.
Would suppress the dialog be enough?
I actually want the dialogue though, the important thing is the timeout.
I want to be able to reboot our devices during maintenance, but if a user is active on a device, I want them to be able to cancel the reboot process, and if not, the timer runs out and the device reboots. It works like this when I run user_shutdown: _(first screenshot)_
but user_reboot does not have the timer: _(2nd screenshot)_
And forcefully rebooting without showing a warning or allowing the user to cancel is exactly what we want to avoid.
Does that make sense?
Maybe a possible workaround could be to make a custom window using ‘yad’? That should work I guess. But I was hoping there would be an easier way
The fun fact is that this GTK Message is calling:
user_reboot, this calls soft_reboot and there:
if [ “$REBOOT_TIMEOUT” = “yes” ] ; then
TIMEOUT_MSG_PARAM=”-S -s $DIALOG_TIMEOUT”
I’m on a call atm., but will check.
