Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "My verdict: Even in the relatively slick Ubuntu variation, Linux is still too rough around the edges for the vast majority of computer users", says Mossberg. Among others, he complains about one of the things I did too when I was writing my stream of Ubuntu reviews back in Spring.

I guess it would have worked simply by unlogging / relogging.

That's a typical windows habit to reboot to solve problems ;)

Dumb Question:

How do you unlog something or relog it? What does "log" mean in this context?

The only contexts (that I know of) where "log" is a verb is when recording data (ie logging data) in a log and when harvesting trees. Neither seems relevant to your use of the term.

This is a genuine question because I am seeking knowledge, but it is also semi-rhetorical because the vast and overwheming majority of people (not OSnews readers) would probably ask the same question.

And yes, I tried Google, "define: unlogging", "define: relogging", "define: unlog", and "define: relog" all return no meaningful result.

Nothing, probably just a poor translation from french.
However "log in" and "log out" are pretty common. So I should instead say "log out and log in". Or "close and reopen a session".
