Adding the Indicator Applet back to the panel is the "right" solution, however if for some reason that doesn't work for you, this blog post describes how to create your own shutdown, reboot & hibernate with one click applet.

  • @jdouma, you're welcome :) I'm glad to be of assistance. You should accept the answer that works for you. – matt wilkie Jul 23 '10 at 16:16

Right-click a blank area of the panel and click "Add to panel."

Then drag the "Indicator Applet Sessions" item to the panel.

  • @j douma - Did you delete some packages? Did you use the official install disc? – Shiki Jul 21 '10 at 15:34
  • Indicator Applet is logout/shutdown/switch-user etc all in one. However "shutdown" and "logout" should be amoung the available applets as well. If they are missing you might try reinstalling ubuntu-desktop package – matt wilkie Jul 21 '10 at 15:49
