thank you for this, really nice applet. Had a problem where the icon wouldn't show though, and in case anyone else has the issue here is the workaround:

copy (or make a link) /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/actions/system-shutdown-symbolic.svg in ~/.icons/your_theme_name/scalable/actions (some themes like Faience use actions/scalable) and reload the shell

5 stars, i am force to use it, because am using "My launcher" applet for cinnamon where i can construct my own menu, but a shutdown shortcut in mint 13 file was changed.
In mint 12 the pathway was like this:
Shutdown System=/usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper --shutdown
The shortcut was in usr/share/applications, but right now it's gone,
Anyone know where is the it in Maya?

Nice work. Could you make it translatable for use in different languages?
Btw, the file settings.py seems to be copied form another applet.

Some lines:

Settings Application for the All-in-one Places applet for Cinnamon
http://jferrao.github.com/gtk

Requires Python 2.7


@author jferrao <jferrao@ymail.com>
@version 1.0


This confuses, please make it unique.

hi. i searching applet, which can display remaining time, not percentage like default power applet, of battery. Can you make it, or customize default power applet? Thanx in advance, mate.

Nice update. I like the new Python settings window. Your applet should be included by default in Cinnamon. I can think of one final thing that would add the final polish to your applet and send it over the top: do away with the need for the restart button and rebuild the applet popup menu when the applet detects the JSON file has changed. You can find a sample of code that does this in my mylauncher applet. You basically setup a file watcher for your JSON file. When it is changed then call a method which deletes the child items in the popupmenu and then adds them back in dynamically. the delete children function is: this.menu.removeAll().

The new version 2.0.1 doesn't work if put in the root directory (/usr/share/cinnamon/applets/) so it doesn't work in a PPA install, gonna have to stick with the previous version in the PPA for now.

I like the native Cinnamon dialogs you have now. Makes it look more complete being uniform. I use your applet regularly on my system.

Slight Spices folder compression error in current version, it doesn't decompress into "QuitApplet@bownz" as it should but into "WRSZ-TNVP-SZ62" (spices formatting) containing the applet files. Not a problem for me but some newcomers might be confused.

I also know how to fix the bug where the hibernate button doesn't work:

Find the relevant lines in applet.js AND the py file about hibernate. The lines look like this:
dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.UPower /org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.UPower.Suspend
Change the work Suspend to Hibernate (notice the capital H)

This is how to fix the button where the restart button doesn't work correctly:

Open the py file, and find where it talks about restart. Find the following:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop

Change the word Stop to Restart (notice the capital R)

I had time tonight to open the applet and look at it. To cause the applet to show up, the files in the archive should be placed in /home/nathan/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/QuitApplet@bownz

The "Restart" option isn't working. It shuts down the computer.
Great job on your applets, btw!

Same as pharmville, but am using normal mint 12, nothing appear. "Shutdown applet 1.4" works fine... but i prefer with confirmation before quiting, so am waiting for repaired version.

Has anyone successfully used this applet with LMDE and cinnamon 1.4? I have a newly installed LMDE system. I put the files in their own folder in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets, enabled the applet by checking the box, and nothing is different. Nothing new on the panel.

You can also improve the integration of the items, changing the labels for others who have their documentation available to the user's native language. Changing only the texts of addAction command:
"Lock Screen" to "Lock screen", "Log Out??..." to "Logout" and "Shut Down..." with "Quit".

Thanks for this applet.
Most everything works, but the 'suspend mode". Any ideas?
I am using it on LMDE (Mint Debian).
