Question Can I put a logout icon on desktop?


I'm using KDE 3.3 and I was wondering if there is a way to put a logout icon on the desktop instead of using the one in the kicker panel?

Create a new desktop icon and use the following command:

dcop kdesktop KDesktopIface logout

This will provide the logout screen. If you disabled the confirmation in the Session Manager it will log you out immediately.

You can also put a logout on the taskbar.
