You really don't, not if you want to maintain any sanity.

>The question is, how can I redirect the user to a custom page after logout? Or at least how can I customize the page on ID where the user is redirected to.

The SP sends requests with an extension to tell the IdP to skip returning to the SP at the end. If you want to get control back and make use of a return parameter when the logout is started, set the asynchronous option to false in the <Logout> element.

>I have tried to edit the file shibboleth-identityprovider-2.4.0/src/main/webapp/logout.jsp  and install IDP again, but it does not change anything. After logout I am being redirected to the same example redirect page.

If that were true, then you would have to be using the asynchronous=false option and you would just need to add the return parameter to whatever is initiating the logout.
