I use LXDE and it is quite fast and nice working, however,
at the moment the red button of log out is not working - I get an error message.
I do not know if it stopped working after one system updating or I changed something.
Anyway, I want to work it out: The command that should be executed is lxsession-logout -
when hit it in console I get the logout menu -
Please advise how to make the linkage between button and this command?

Did you customize the command in the panel preferences? Guess it somehow depends on which window manager you are using for the lx stuff.

It is openbox window manager.
I tried to customize the command however, It is not as in your panel preferences -
I have only the line: 'Terminal Emulator', but the line: 'Logout Command' is missing??

Maybe it depends on LXPanel version? Mine is LXPanel 0.8.1

Mine is 0.7.0 - I see that 0.8.1 is not stable - maybe it is a good idea to upgrade...

I emerged LXPanel 0.8.1 and still do not have 'Logout Command' line -
need to see what am I doing wrong...
Hope to find configuration file and edit with the right logout command...
