You should launch the application from the terminal, in this way if the application still crashes you will be able to see more information about the issue in the terminal itself. After that, you could post here the description of the error and we can try together to figure out a solution.

However, you if you want to shutdown your Pc after of a certain amount of time, you can use the terminal:

sudo shutdown -P 60

"60" are minutes.

sudo shutdown -P 2:00

to shutdown at 2am, or even:

sudo shutdown -P now

to shutdown right now.

  • when i try to launch it from terminal it says the command not found. i press EasyShutdown right? May 14, 2016 at 7:10
  • i typed in a terminal easyshutdown.py and it say access denial May 14, 2016 at 7:21
  • when i type sudo easyshutdown.py it says command not found May 14, 2016 at 7:30
  • Ok, I've installed the application, I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 / 3.16.0-71-generic , and it works fine. So, you can try to unistall your previus version and try whit this: launchpad.net/easyshutdown/trunk/0.6/+download/… May 15, 2016 at 0:01
  • So, you can try to uninstall your previous version and try this instead: launchpad.net/easyshutdown/trunk/0.6/+download/… Notice that if you block the application on the launcher you can interact with it directly right clicking on it, a small menu will pop out. Let me know if it works. May 15, 2016 at 0:06
