Logout, reboot and shutdown using the terminal

When I want to log out of my Plasma session, I run a command:

Please don’t use that.

 qdbus org.kde.LogoutPrompt /LogoutPrompt  org.kde.LogoutPrompt.promptLogout
 qdbus org.kde.LogoutPrompt /LogoutPrompt  promptReboot
qdbus org.kde.LogoutPrompt /LogoutPrompt  promptShutdown

to get a prompt

or

qdbus org.kde.Shutdown /Shutdown  org.kde.Shutdown.logout

logoutAndReboot
logoutAndShutdown

to perform an action without prompt

This works in Plasma 5 since a few years, the ksmserver API will be gone in Plasma 6. I didn’t get rid of it at the time given how much the old API has been copy pasted about the internet.
