I have installed xfce desktop , but, I don't see any log out option in fedora 20. Even , when I start fedora , there is no settings option in fedora for selecting xfce desktop. How can I solve this problem ? Thanks.

Also, I don't see why you've picked gnome-software and software-install as tags. I'm retagging the post :)

You're really asking two questions here, so I'll address both of them. First, you won't see an option to select your desktop on the login screen unless you have more than one installed. If Xfce is the only DE you have (as it is with me) you won't be asked to select your desktop because there's only one for you to pick. If, however, you have more than one, please say so in a comment to this answer and somebody will know what you need.

Second, there are two ways to log out in Xfce. First, if you click on your Main Menu button, the bottom selection is Log Out. Second, you can right-click on your panel, select Add New Items and add the one called Action Buttons. This will bring up the same dialog as logging out from the Main Menu, but you might find it more convenient.

How about Ctrl + Alt + Delete?

On my system, that brings up the screensaver in "lock mode," even though I've set xscreensaver not to lock the screen. Yes, you have the choice of unlocking the screen or logging in as somebody else, but I don't think that this is what the poster was looking for.

@sideburns - Sorry, it works on my KDE though. So I though it might work in XFCE.
