Ubuntu – No menu option to “switch user” in Cinnamon desktop


The menu has options to lock the screen, log out and shutdown, but there isn't an option that allows me to switch to a different user. Is there another way to do that or, even better, is there a way to add that option to the global menu? I am using Ubuntu 11.10.

One suggestion is to create either a favourite shortcut in the main menu or a panel shortcut.

To do this, use alacarte to create a shortcut to the command gdmflexiserver

Logout and login

Then search for your shortcut:

Right-click the menu item and choose one of the options as shown.
