    where can I log out in unity desktop in 14.04

    Hi well if it can be broken I seem to find it.
    I booted into 14.4 and where the logout was in the top bar the icon was missing, this has happend to me now a coupel times. ( but not always it seems to be a hit and miss situation )
    is there anywhare I can log out, restart, or shutdown the unity desktop other than the top bar?
    my only fix for now is to open the terminal and type sudo shutdown now -h which will shutdown the system.
    also can anyone tell me the terminal comand to rerstart the system insted of shuting it down?

    Code:
    sudo reboot
    Although...

    Code:
    killall unity-panel-service
    worked for me in resetting the panel.

    Glad you are sorted, just a small point... it is 14.04, not 14.4.

    Only saying as version numbers can be quite important

    I believe this also works
    Code:
     sudo restart lightdm

    Just didn't work for me. I'm in the middle of an update to
    linux-image-3.12.0-4-generic from the -2
    then I'll do a sudo reboot in a terminal window.

    control/alt/delete keys held down at the same time should bring up the log out window...and if you log out and back in, the icon should return to the panel....we had the same problem on 13.10 testing for a while until it got fixed...

    Due to someones brilliant idea ctrl+alt+delete is now bound to open the sys monitor in compiz installs. If it still opens a log out screen then either one is on an older install updated or maybe gnome-flashback/compiz isn't behaving nicely in this regard.

    (considering the continuing issue with disappearing indicators, mouse cursor, ect. maybe they should have left well enough alone..

    Ctrl-Alt-Backspace?

    Indeed, Ctrl+Alt+Del opens up the system monitor in this fresh 14.04 install, although the keyboard application thinks it should offer a logout

    Ctrl+Alt+Backspace does nothing.
