#8291 closed defect (fixed)

Shutdown / Reboot values should not be pre-filled

After the resolution of ticket #8160, shutdown and reboot via dbus will not work from any new frontend without a user disabling shutdown and reboot commands.

#8160 was a reaction to #7749, the original intention of #7749 was to make the shutdown experience better for more users by trying dbus first. #8160 inverted the behavior to try specified commands followed by dbus.

There was a second patch attached to #8160 that avoids presetting the shutdown and reboot commands. Then advanced users who want to use them can do so still, satisfying #7749 & #8160.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [25433]) Fixes #8291. Remove the default values for the "Reboot command" and "Halt command" settings.

The given values likely will not work on most systems without at least a sudo (and possibly path information), and including default values prevents dbus shutdown from working. Therefore, more systems are likely to just do the right thing without the default values. Users wanting to use a script can simply provide the appropriate command invocation (which is almost definitely different from the former default values). This change will only affect new setups, not existing setups. Refs #8160. Refs #7749.
