How do I force a logout in Lightroom 4 publishing Manager? The logout box is greyed out and the login is not correct.

If the login is incorrect then you are not logged in, so the logout function isn't applicable, hence it is grayed out.

It says that I'm logged in as xxxxxxx right next to the greyed out logout button in Publishing Manager. When I try to publish it errors after a while with incorrect permissions message. I know that I'm not logged on to Flicker, that's why I get the error, but Lightroom thinks I am and won't ask me to authenicate like it should. In flicker there is not access granted for Lightroom either.

Is the problem that LR cannot login using the credentials it has stored, or is the problem that id can login but is not authorized to do anything.

In other words, do you need to change LR's credentials for Flickr or do you need Flickr to authorize LR to do things?

I need to do both, but LR won't reauthorize with Flickr, and flicker has no authorization present for LR.

A little background. I had to re-install LR4 do to a system problem. I have two flicker accounts, with the first after I deleted the LR authorization in Flickr, LR asked me to reauthorize with Flicker, which I did and and all works fine for that account. With the other account, I did the same, deleted the LR authorization in Flicker, but LR still thinks it's logged in to Flickr and won't pop up the authorization routine. If a add a new publish service, the authorization pops up for the new service. As I don't want to have to loose everything I've done in LR/Flicker relations for the problem acount I need to get LR to ask for me to authorize with Flickr for this account. I hope this makes sense
