Toggle the logout menu in Gnome

Logout option disabled in Gnome

If you only have one user configured on Fedora, the logout menu is disabled. To enable it simply run the following command in a terminal.

dconf write /org/gnome/shell/always-show-log-out true

This command will take effect immediately and the menu will now give you the option to logout by clicking your user.
