View Full Version : [ubuntu] removed the shut down button by mistake...

September 6th, 2010, 07:40 PM
Don't ask me how but I somehow managed to throw away the shutdown button of my Lucid install.

In the panel screen I already found another shutdown button but it's not really the same.

Anyone have a clue where I can find the original back ?

"Indicator Applet Session" I think.

yep that did it, took me a while to find it in Dutch but found it anyway....they could've chosen a name that's a little clearer though..

To shutdown from a terminal:

sudo shutdown now

To reboot:

sudo shutdown -r now

You can switch to terminal mode: Ctrl-Alt-F1

There are 6 terminals, number 1 to 6: use F1 to F6. Ctrl-Alt-F7 brings you back to the GUI.
