Yup, it is - I know the feeling when you can't find something like that though.

I'm not sure what you're running for a window manager or anything, but one of the following should do it:

Right click (or maybe left or centre) on the desktop, you should get a menu that has "Logout" or "Quit" or something on it.


Click the button on the taskbar (like the start button in windoze) and hit "logout"


Failing those, press CTRL-ALT-Backspace. (That ALWAYS works!)

I beg to differ, slackware 8.1 broke the control+alt+backspace thing and control+alt+delete closed X, and did not restart the whole comp. they fixe dit in the next versions though.
