What do you want to acheive ? Give a custom message for shutdown command ?

You could do it like :
Code:
/sbin/shutdown  -h now 'The computer is going to be halted'
Try man shutdown for more infos

No, no, no, I do not want to print anything. I meant the system log for shutdown, maybe from the system log I can get info about that error message.

/var/log/syslog maybe ?
You talk about system shutdown command or KDE shutdown ?

Also, there is no log on the error window itself ?

Is there a difference? I am refering to the shutdown button which appears when you click on logout form the context menu.

I don't know, is it the same behavior if you do
/sbin/shutdown -h now from a konsole
or if you click on the shutdown button ?

I mean does the error window appear in both case ?
