Xfce Log Out button immediately logs out, instead of options

Postby tomfumb on Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:27 pm

When I started working with Mint 13 with Xfce (which I love) a few days ago if I clicked the Log Out option in the menu it presented options including Shut Down and Reboot.

Now when I click the same button I am immediately logged out and returned to the login screen. Is this something that I've accidentally changed, or a problem in Xfce?

Any assistance / thoughts on why this behaviour changed are much appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Right click panel applet icon.

Tick (Show Confirmation Dialog)

Might have been changed by accident?

EDIT:
Sorry read your post too fast.
You said in the menu?
Have no idea there?

How about Settings -> Session and Startup -> General tab
Make sure the option "Prompt on logout" is enabled.

Hope this helps. :wink:

Hooray awesome that fixed it, thanks! Not sure if, when, or why I changed that, but happy it's once again working as I expected.
