How change default timing of logouts or restarts?


I'd like to be able to shorten the default time of 30 seconds for doing a logout or restart in Ubuntu (or Kubuntu).

What should I do? and/or What is the relevant file?

Thanks

You can disable the timeout altogether, but I don't think that is what you are looking for.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, I'd prefer just to shorten the waiting time, but disabling the option altogether will suit me better than having either to wait 30 seconds or else click a 2nd time.

Hmm, just had a look at the source for the logout part of gnome-session, and the shutdown timeout is hard coded to be 60 seconds (#define AUTOMATIC_ACTION_TIMEOUT 60).

So you are out of luck - perhaps worth putting in a feature suggestion to the gnome team if there isn't already one.
