    logoff item missing from applications menu

    After a recent upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04, my "logoff" menu item went missing. I have to use the command prompt to logoff, reboot or shutdown.

    So, it's XFCE and basically, I think I'm looking for where you edit the menu items. I would prefer a gui method, but a config file would be ok if that was the only way.

    Interestingly, I was looking for a way to remove it from another machine...and then this happened.

    My box is actually down, so I can't tell you the correct names of the things you got to click.

    But you can right-click and add a logoff-button to the task bar instead of the menu. This enables you to log off, restart, etc..

    But I believe, the logoff thing is still there in the Applications -> System menu.

    I appreciate the alternative option, but I'm really wanting the normal logoff menu item put back.

    Also, the logoff isn't in the system sub menu.

    I usually shutdown or reboot from the options given when exiting mythfrontend, ie pressing <esc> on the remote at the top level menu.

    On my system it gives the options to exit mythtv, exit and reboot, exit and shutdown, etc.

    Another reason I need the actual logoff menu item is because it asks if I want to keep the same window layout when it boots back up. Right now, when it starts, a window is on top of MythTV. I need to reset it....plus I want to know how to remove it for another configuration anyway.
