Is the reboot /shutdown timeout time excessive. Would you like to change it to something more reasonable for you like 5 or 10 seconds instead.

If so then preform the following simple steps.

Install the program sd using synaptic .

open a console window and su to the root user


Now enter the following command

sd "30" "15" /usr/share/plasma/look-and-feel/org.kde.breeze.desktop/contents/logout/Logout.qml

This will change the reboot/logout timeout from 30 seconds to 15 seconds. If you would like to use a 5 or 10 second timeout change the 15 in the above command to either 5 or 10

Once you have the command set for the timeout you want press Enter

Now the next time you shutdown or reboot you will see your new logout/reboot time.
