I just had a strange experience, here is what happened:
- My computer accidentally shut down as the computer became unplugged
- I am not sure if I accidentally hid the task bar?
Regardless my task bar disappeared…not sure I am using the right term but I am refering to the bar, on my desktop, it was ontop of the screen. This task bar had icons for my wifi, battery, clock, etc…
I can only access my templates by left clicking on my desktop…
If my memory serves me right, I control this via the “panel” however when I go to:
Applications → System Tools->Panel
I get an error “Failed to show the preference dialog - GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name is not activatable”
I found this solution:
Which brought the panel back…strange. Never had this before…
This was the solution provided on the link above:
Actually, this is the solution
@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.
Newbie question but what command do I type in Dom0 to “execute”? Do I need to do something when they say “Then it is needed forcibly to close the terminal regardless of the warning.”?
