"Hi everyone, I'm happy to be part of this forum. I installed GarudaLinux with GNOME. I would like to know if it is possible to add the "shutdown" icon to the top right panel."
The power menu is already built into the top-right panel. When you click the taskbar you will see a button with the universal power symbol on it:
Click on it and it will open the power options:
Hi guys, first of all thank you for welcoming me to the group.
I have installed Garuda with GNOME.
I would like to know if it is possible to make some small modifications to the top panel. I would like the power off button to be there too. Is it possible?
Thank you for your kind response, but actually what I meant was that I would like to display the power off icon directly on the panel, next to the battery percentage.
Customizing Gnome in any way is notoriously difficult. If you want to take a crack at it, this would be the way:
Hi @MarioDN, I took a look through some Gnome extensions and found this one, which appears to be exactly the extension you want:
It seems like it is broken though; I tried installing it to test and it throws an error in the extension manager.
Gnome is notorious for breaking extensions with every release. Keep an eye on it though; maybe the maintainer will circle back and fix it.
This one works, if you want to check it out in the meanwhile:
It doesn't add the button into the panel, however it does break out the power menu into individual buttons (you don't need to open the submenu).
It'll at least save you a click compared to the panel -> power menu -> power option method.
Don't forget to install
sudo pacman -S gnome-shell-extensions
I hope that helps, welcome to the community.
Thank you very much for your interest. It's a shame that the first extension is broken, but I'll wait for something to change. The second plugin is also very interesting. Thanks again.
