My panel in qubes4.1 is somehow gone… I was just browsing in the internet and then all at once my panel was gone. I rebooted the device but still it is missing.
I found the xfce4-panel.xml file, so i guess it should be possible to “restart” it again but i don’t know how. I don’t know how to “start” the panel and if i have to make changes at the xml file i don’t know how to do that either.
When i right click and go to “Applications” → “System Tools” and then click on “Panel” i get this error message:
Does anyone know what could caused the problem and how to solve it?
This is probably related to xfce in Fedora which runs in dom0, i.e. not Qubes-specific. You could try to search on their forums. Sorry that I can’t tell more, I’m not an expert.
ok thanks, i’ll try that.
@Qubes_User171 should start terminal in dom0, execute
xfce4-panel. Panel will show up. Then it is needed forcibly to close the terminal regardless of the warning. The panel will disappear and reappear in a flash second.
It usually happens when using context menu while on panel which somehow triggers closing the panel without the warning.
thanks that solved it!
i rebooted the device and the panel is still there
You are welcome. If you don’t want to restart computer right upon this, some icons might be missing from the notification area, mostly network related. Just restart correspondent services/qubes, and they will reappear. After computer restart, all missing icons would reappear anyway.
