I wasn't, now I am, but it still prompts the confirmation and password window, which is very annoying. I have no idea of what to write, and I have no idea of how to disable it.

Re: Logout Command

Thank you! It works perfectly; Linux has a Lock Screen command, a Shut Down command, but no Logout command, so it will be very useful to have a custom one programmed so it is a little bit more complete. It shall come handy; Thanks again.
