Add Shutdown Button to LXPanel

Shutdown Button is missing from LXPanel, how can I add it?


From LXTerminal, please run this command:
gksudo leafpad /usr/share/applications/lubuntu-logout.desktop

Now, copy the below content, paste it into lubuntu-logout.desktop file, Save and Exit: 

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Shutdown
Comment=Shutdown or Reboot
Icon=system-shutdown-panel
Exec=lubuntu-logout
#NoDisplay=true
Type=Application
Categories=Settings;


After that, please right click on LXPanel > Add/Remove Panel Items > Add > Application Launch Bar > Add > double click on Application Launch Bar > Preferences > select Shutdown from the list and on the right and then click "Add" > Close > Close

  1. I tried this but without any success. However, I did something very close to this shown here (apparently from the poster himself):

    And it worked like a charm!
