Why can't I make a Desktop shutdown icon?
I used this command in a terminal
ln -s /boot/system/bin/shutdown /boot/home/Desktop
to provide an icon on the Desktop that I intended to use (from launchbox) to get a 1-click shutdown (or reboot).
However, when I click it I get this message
The application "shutdown" might be blocked on a modal plane
When I hit the "Kill application" in the same message box, the computer shuts down without problem.
However, if I run the command
in a terminal, the computer shuts down without any error message.
What's going on here?
Also, I cannot find any "reboot" application (equivalent to /boot/system/bin/shutdown) but it must be there somewhere but probably under an unexpected name.
