I've looked and can't seem to find the answer to what I thought would be an easy question. I use the shutdown command to turn off my computer, and my old Ubuntu 10.04 used to give a message showing the time till shutdown, which would update every so often. With Mint kde 14 I get no messages, not even when I first issue the command, it used to say 'system will shoutdown in X minutes', or something like that, now it says nothing, which makes me wonder if it will really shutdown. I've tried the --verbose but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Thanks for any advice!
