Logout gracefully from KDE

For KDE 3.x, I use the command: $ dcop –all-sessions –user username ksmserver default logout 0 0 0 For KDE 4.x, make sure the environment variable DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS is set for the appropriate session. You can usually find this in /usr/home/username/.dbus/session-bus/. Then use the command: $ qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer org.kde.KSMServerInterface.logout 0 0 0
