View Full Version : Gnome panel bug
July 27th, 2010, 11:20 AM
Hi, the icons keep disappearing or don't fit properly in the top-right area of the panel.
Using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit.
Obviously nothing I can do about it, so it's a bug??

One temporary workaround: right-click on it, select "Properties" tick "Show hide buttons" and then un-tick it and the icons will magically re-appear.
How do I file this as a bug report?
Is anyone else experiencing problems with icons going missing or not fitting properly in the top-right area?

There are a few bug reports.
I've switched to usung cairo dock, which looks pretty snappy.

I'm surprised nobody has fixed this issue yet??
It seems more problematic in the 64-bit Ubuntu.

I also have this problem with the icons on the Gnome panel. For reasons I have yet to pin down, they sometimes are messed up when the desktop starts. Sometimes a reboot is needed to fix, not just a logout.
The problems include the icons overlapping, hiding each other, or just plain missing.
Most often I have problems with Indicator Applet Session but the moon phase applet seems to do it a lot too. It's not restricted to just those though.
I am running 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. As a long term service release, this problem is rather annoying because it happens pretty often.
I don't know if the behavior is required or depends upon the icons being locked to the panel.
It may require a dev to use a 64-bit machine for a few days until it happens.
The problem became more severe in the 10.04 LTS release of Ubuntu over the 9.04 release, where it was much less (or even absent).
Sorry I can't be more specific. It's hard to figure this one out.

It's still a problem in Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit - but a simple right-click on the panel - away from the icons, then left-click "Properties" > "Show hide buttons" and always have "Arrows on hide buttons" then unticking "Show hide buttons" seems to cure it by redrawing the icons on the right-hand side.
Seems like the Ubuntu people are not taking this bug seriously? :confused:
