View Full Version : [ubuntu] Log off button disappeared

July 14th, 2010, 01:52 AM

I am not sure if somebody else had the same problem (if so please direct me; I did a search and found nothing.)

Basically what happened is that I installed ubuntu 10.04 a few weeks ago. At some point, there were two gwibber icons in my task bar, one covering my "log off" button. (Not sure what the term for that is.) I restarted and it was fine, then it appeared again. I then shut gwibber via console, and since then my log off thing has not yet reappeared, i.e. I am constantly shutting down in console. What can I do to have that button back?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi christinak.

The buttons have been troublsome for many users.

One option, is to right click an empty spot on the top panel.

Click "add to panel", and choose "shut down button".
