i am having trouble "shutting down" ubuntu on my TP. i do the lxde logout similar to the way windows works (sorry, this is my first time on a linux os). that terminates the process running within the terminal and shows the prompt, but not without the following error:

dbus-interface.c:47 failed to connect to the system message bus: failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: no such file or directory

also, the lxde ui never goes away, yet its icons all look weird. i just want to close it properly.

thanks!
