    gnome-shell: logout button instead of shutdown after upgrade

    hello,

    i used to have shutdown option in upper-right gnome-shell's menu. now, after an upgrade, i can only log out. any idea how to go back to state it was before?

    thank you,

    jose, ubuntu 11.10 on x86

    Hi!, jose1711,

    If you are using >11.10, logged in to Gnome, then the drop down menu has an entry named "Suspend" at the bottom, below "Log-out".

    Place the cursor on 'Suspend' and press 'ALT'; it will alter to "Power off", that's what you call "Shut-Down".

    Crazy, I know, and how anyone is supposed to find out is a mystery as well.

    Chao!, bogan.

    If you are like me, I like having the ability to shutdown. Grab the Frippery Shutdown extension for gnome-shell.

    https://extensions.gnome.org/extensi...hut-down-menu/

    If you are running Gnome-Shell 3.4, he has an updated version of the extension on his web site: http://intgat.tigress.co.uk/rmy/extensions/index.html

    thank you both of you. i do know the alt-key trick and also the extension to have shutdown always visible. my mum did not however explained the issue well enough - she just told me she suddenly could saw logout, not shutdown (but the suspend was there as well - for some reason the extension stopped working after update).

    we sorted that out during a teamviewer call.

    cheers,

    jose

    It is a most amasing thing i have seen since last 7 years of ubuntu.
