How to Enable logout Option in Fedora

( You can run gnome-session-quit to logout from command line )

If you only have one user set up on a system, and only have one Desktop environment installed (i.e. just GNOME) then the logout option is not shown.

To enable the logout in Fedora

$ sudo yum -y install dconf-editor

$ dconf-editor &

Navigate to the org > gnome > shell key.
Check the option “always-show-log-out” (pictured below in the screenshot), to always show the logout option. Note, however, that a restart of the shell or a reboot may be required for this option to start working.
