Task bar or panel below for xfce 4 sometimes dissappears when I right click on it. If i right click on vlmenu icon from task bar to maybe change the icon, the icon disappears.
Right-Click Taskbar - -> it dissappears. This is not always the case and keep in mind that I tried installing and removing things like slacke17, superkaramba, icewm, etc from different places.. I removed them all, but issue still persists sometimes..
Most other times, it just works fine... This OS flies given the bloat I have added to it.... And this is not a complaint..
EDIT: solution i found here: http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=4817.0
from Blurymind: pres alt+f2 on your keyboard
a little box will pop up
type "xfce4-panel" if you are in xfce and "kicker" (without quotes) if you are in kde.press enter and hope
this thread will be probably moved
From rbistolfi - Blury beat me, the problem surely was you non volunteering saved your session, since xfce do that by default. So the problem sticks on future login and even in reboots.
Be sure to check the "save session" box when logout, so it will be there in the next login. Once the panel is back, I recommend to disable the "save session" thing. It causes more problems than solutions. You can do that from 'Settings' > 'Sessions and startup settings'. Uncheck the logout settings boxes.
I shall use this till the final release. I am impressed. So just mentioning for folks to be aware and see if they replicate same issue. But this would probably solves my problem. I may have caused it when I went into windowmaker and fluxbox.
