Thats what I had in mind. Let me guess here. I would create a script here to do all my smaller scripts then name it something like scriptshutdown. Here is my guess here I would edit the file:/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc and change this section:
Of coarse I would add poweroff to the last line in the new script. I am not sure it will run a script from here or not. Would there be a better place to link the new shutdown script to. I don't know if I would use sudo here or not. If I make the script available to all it should work fine.
Here is a few things I would like to accomplish with the script. It would copy certain files like bookmarks and email to another drive for backup and be available in an event of the main drive crash. Send this output to display on the screen using xterm to show all is done. Of coarse let it pause a few seconds using ping as a pause statement. Then powerdown. Doing the script I can do fine, just don't know where to put it mostly.
