xfce4-session-logout — Logs out from Xfce


This manual page documents briefly the xfce4-session-logout command.

The xfce4-session-logout command allows you to programmatically logout from your Xfce session. It requests the session manager to display the logout confirmation screen, or, if given one of the command-line options below, causes the session manager to take the requested action immediately.


xfce4-session-logout takes the following command line options:

Log out without displaying the logout dialog.
Halt without displaing the logout dialog.
Reboot without displaying the logout dialog.
Suspend without displaying the logout dialog.
Hibernate without displaying the logout dialog.
Do a fast shutdown. This instructs the session manager not to save the session, but instead to quit everything quickly.
Print a help screen and exit.
Output version information and exit.


xfce4-session-logout and this manual page were written by Brian Tarricone <kelnos@xfce.org> and Benedikt Meurer <benny@xfce.org> as part of the Xfce project.
