Hi,
I'm using GuixSD v0.10.0. The default GNOME installation does not havethe "log out" button enabled by default. I've heard that this is thenew default in GNOME, so it's probably not an issue we need to fix.However, I cannot seem to enable it at all.
My understanding is that you should be able to enable the "log out"button with a command like the following:
gsettings set org.gnome.shell always-show-log-out true
I've tried this. Even though running
gsettings get org.gnome.shell always-show-log-out
shows that the setting was stored as 'true' (even after rebooting), the"log out" button does not get displayed when I log into GNOME. MaybeI'm looking in the wrong spot: I expected to find it near the "tools"and "power" buttons, which are located in the menu that appears when youclick on the upper right corner of the GUI.
How can I enable the logout button in GNOME?

Sure. If you set the following gsettings property to true, then thelogout button will be enabled:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell always-show-log-out true
You can view the current value with:
$ gsettings get org.gnome.shell always-show-log-out

Thanks!
For anyone following along, this probably won't work over SSH. You haveto using the graphical environment.

I think GNOME now hides it by default, so this is the intended defaultbehavior:
http://www.ryanlerch.org/blog/no-logout-option-in-the-gnome-shell-user-menu/
I can't find an official GNOME bug report related to this, but it seemsplausible to me. Since we have confirmed that it is possible to enablethe logout button via gsettings, I think we can close this bug report.

Does that mean that upstream chose to hide the “log out” button bydefault? Or is it a bug on our side that leads to this setting?

The gsettings trick does work for me, and the “Log Out” action will underthe ‘User’ menu (it’s below the ‘Battery’ menu, only icon and no name).
