Hi guys.
Can someone help me?
I created refresh button on desktop:
Code:
[Desktop Entry] 
Type=Application 
Terminal=false 
Name=N9 QRefresh 
Categories=System; 
Terminal=false 
Exec=/usr/bin/meego-terminal -n -e devel-su -c "sh /opt/N9QTweak/Refresh/refresh" 
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/80x80/apps/n9refresh80.png
and it's work good, but it's need open the terminal app and insert root password. Maybe someone know what I need write in the "Exec" line that I can use refresh command without opening of terminal. Directly refresh. It is passably?

Quite interested to know that too..

Not only for refresh, for reboot and for shutdown as well.
I know there are apps for that (did i just say that?), but it would be interesting to know exactly how it works..how would we be able to get a desktop shortcut for a terminal command (as root).

Command it's not a problem here...
The commands for you:
Reboot:
Code:
/sbin/reboot
Refresh lockscreen and statusbar:
Code:
/sbin/initctl restart xsession/sysuid
Refresh homescreen:
Code:
/sbin/initctl restart xsession/mthome

ermm... but won't I need root access?
can i just make a .desktop file with those commands and it will work?
or..will it open terminal and ask me for root password like in your case?

This it's a problem and reason for this thread.. I don't know how to implement this commands directly in the desktop file.. I created a simple script with this command and put the link to this script (see my example) and this need terminal access to script...
