the bottom entry is labeled 'exit' -- is it not showing up for you?

Comment 2 jw1233219 2003-01-06 23:33:42 UTC
Yes, you can select exit.
But the next time you login you get the same applet again!

Everything else has an option to remove from the panel.
But it feels like RH is saying "... you wont like this applet therefore
we wont provide an option for you to remove it ..."

Sounds like a packing problem for the notification-area-applet which
is part of the gnome-panel,

Oops wrong bug window :-) it's a rhn-applet bug report,


Comment 5 Daniel Veillard 2003-09-28 20:40:59 UTC
I assume you're using the GNOME environment. In that case when
logging out, check the "Save Current Setup" option in the logout
dialog to have the modification effect made permanent.
I have tried removing the applet, logging out, logging in, adding
the applet back, then logging out and in again. If the "save
current setup" option is activated the changes are made persistant
for the next logins.
Seems to work for me in the current release,
