Show real name in Unity panel

I can not remember whether there was real name shown in Unity panel by default, in earlier versions of Ubuntu's Unity. Nevermind, in this article I am going to show You how to do it. I prefer not to show my name in Unity panel, but who cares about me...

OK, there are more then one way to do this, but I'll do it in two different ways.

dconf-editor

Open dconf-editor and navigate to apps/indicator-session and check the box behind show-real-name-on-panel.





















Unity Tweak Tool

Launch Unity Tweak Tool and search for Panel section. There You can check the box before Show my name.




















Now You can see Your (real) name in the far right on panel.
