Enable user name display on panel on your Ubuntu 14.04 system

Here's how you can show your username on the panel in Ubuntu 14.04.

1. Open a terminal window.

2. Type in the following command then hit Enter.

gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.session show-real-name-on-panel true

3. You can turn off the user name display in the panel with this command.

gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.session show-real-name-on-panel false

By default current logged-in username doesn't show on panel, so you can enable it easily.
