Enable Sharepoint 2010 developer dashboard

I have run the command "stsadm -o setproperty -pn developer-dashboard -pv OnDemand" on powershell however when I open Sharepoint as admin on the sharepoint server there is no icon to start the dashboard. I have looked at many posts on this and I should be able to use this command. It says the command completed successfully. Would it say successful if I did not have permission to run the command? Any ideas on why it is not appearing

I found the solution which was quite simple in the end. The dashboard was enabled however the icon does not appear. It looks as if it is not present however when you click next to the username it does enable it. Quite strange but issue resolved.

Try using the powershell equivalent shown here.
Also if using a custom master page make note of the details at the same URL which advise on what controls need be in place in order to get the DD on non-default master pages

I thought I was using powershell as I selected Sharepoint management shell from the menu and ran the above command.

You were using an stsadm command in a powershell environment.
That said it should still work fine. Could it be to do with master pages as it describes?
