    the lower bar doesnot display applications

    hi..

    i got a problem here.. i was surfing the net and unexpectedly the lower bar of gnome has stopped displaying all the application windows. This is causing a lot of problems.

    For example , in the screen shot , firefox is running but it is not being displayed on the lower bar

    Can any one help me to fix it. Thanks

    Right click the lower panel, click 'Add to panel' In the window that pops up, Select "window list" and "add" it

    Haven't seen this before...

    To fix I would try

    killall gnome-panel

    from a terminal. You shouldn't need to sudo for that.

    The panel will disappear and the reappear after a few seconds.

    If it doesn't reappear, in a terminal type

    gnome-panel

    Hope that helps. This treats the symptom, but not the problem. Does this only happen with Firefox? If so, make sure you have the latest FF and disable your FF Add-ons for a while to see if that fixes it
