Open the menu editor (right click on the applications menu) and look
in the System Tools section.  There should be a "New Login" item
there.  Just check it to make it appear in the menu.  This is provided
by the gdm package, so you almost surely have it.

I have it in my menu and as far as I can recall that's all I had to do
to make it visible.
