So the documentation says:

To log out or switch users, click the power icon on the top bar and select the appropriate option.

However, I cannot see the "log out" option. All I see are:

  • Lock Screen
  • Switch from ubuntu
  • Suspend
  • Restart...
  • Shut Down
  • System settings

I managed to log out via a terminal command. Any way to log out via the Unity GUI or add this option to the power icon menu?

update: I'm running from a live USB.

    Are you on a live USB or CD? If so then that's one case where that option isn't available. – Jorge Castro May 17 '11 at 19:19
  • Open gconf-editor (press Alt + F2, type gconf-editor, press Enter)

  • Navigate to /apps/indicator-session/

  • Make sure none of the checkboxes on the right pane are ticked:

However, it would be interesting to know why that happened (maybe worth reporting a bug).

  • Yay! That worked~ – Leftium May 17 '11 at 19:23
