Log Out of a Session in TerpConnect for UNIX

This page is based on MIT dotfiles from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It has been modified to reflect the TerpConnect computer system environment. These files should not be removed from your account unless you know what you are doing.

Sometimes dotfile errors or a windowmanager failing can make it difficult to logout. Here are some ways to logout:
• Enter logout in any xterm window
• Using dash, choose the special menu and the logout option.
• Click on the root window background area on the screen to get a menu. Depending on the type machine you are logged into you may be able to select logout or a new xterm window. If you get the xterm window simply enter logout at the z:~: prompt.
• If none of these options are available or fail due to changes you made, contact the Service Desk.
