    Help. gnome-panel process doesn't start

    I forced a quick restart with 'sudo shutdown -f now' and when logged back in gnome-panel doesn't start at all.
    I can right-click on the desktop & run terminal from there, so I'm running web browser from terminal.
    I tried 'sudo killall gnome-panel' & got 'no process found'
    I tried doing a full restart, still the same.


    I tried running gnome-panel from the terminal.

    'gnome-panel' gives me my panel after a 4 or 5 second delay. If I exit the terminal or Ctrl-C I lose the panel again.

    'sudo gnome-panel' gives me what appears to be the panel for the root user.

    Re: Help. gnome-panel process doesn't start

    When starting the panel from the terminal, I do get this message;
    Code:
    (gnome-panel:2699): Gdk-WARNING **: /scratch/build-area/gtk+2.0-2.20.1/gdk/x11/gdkdrawable-x11.c:952 drawable is not a pixmap or window
    
    ** (gnome-panel:2699): CRITICAL **: panel_applet_frame_change_background: assertion `PANEL_IS_WIDGET (GTK_WIDGET (frame)->parent)' failed
    I don't know if that means anything.
    Someone help me. I really don't want to have to keep a terminal window open permanently just to have the gnome-panel.
    I also don't want to use the ugly hackjob of adding it to Startup Applications.
    I'd prefer to find why gnome-panel isn't starting as it normally should and fix it properly.

    Re: Help. gnome-panel process doesn't start

    Another thing I have noticed.
    While the panel is down, I cannot Alt+F2 for a Run dialog.
