Hello,

To help people (like me) whom have an error with RPi.GPio not Found, you can install GPio with the line below :
sudo apt-get -y install python3-rpi.gpio

Hope it will help somebody !

To install this script, copy the Python script to /usr/local/bin/button-shutdown.py and the service file to /etc/systemd/system/button-shutdown.service.

Then, reload systemd (or alternatively reboot the Raspberry Pi):

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Now you can start and enable (=autostart) the service:

sudo systemctl enable button-shutdown
sudo systemctl start button-shutdown

To see the current status of the service, type:

sudo systemctl status button-shutdown

To see the logs:

sudo journalctl -u button-shutdown
