Today I was working in AbiWord, and after closing, the taskbar(the bar at the bottom of the screen or how was it named) dissappeared. I rebooted the computer, but no result.
The taskbar is missing!(8 posts) (3 voices)
I am a noob, but try to type lxpanel in the terminal.
or lxpanel --profile (name of profile?)
Nope, not working. I says it is already active.
Log out of X session for the account with missing bottom panel,login to X session as a different user. Does bottom panel appear?
I logged in as root, because I have only 2 profiles in the computer. The bottom panel appeared.
That means a file is missing from my lxpanel profile, isn't it?
There is a bug with lxpanel where if the user makes a change to one panel on next login the other panel doesn't appear.For both panels to appear requires 2 configs named bottom and panel or no configs.If you make a change it only sets the config for the panel you modified. Having 1 config prevents the other panel from appearing. I modify both top and bottom panel to get around the problem so it writes both configs. Without any configs in the users account it defaults to
the global configuration in /etc/lxpanel/slitaz/panels
To bring back both panels:
For user tux:
Logout/in X session
Thanks, it worked! So that means I shouldn't make any changes to only one panel.
Anyway, I'm glad it's back.
Change both top and bottom panels and you won't have a problem.
For example I require a 12hr am/pm clock which is located in top panel.
I change digital clock settings to
%A %d %B - %l:%M %p
I like bottom panel default config so I make minor change of ICON pixel from 22 to 21
Not noticeable but it set's the bottom config file so both panels appear.
