View Full Version : [kubuntu] Kubuntu 8.10 Panel Troubles

January 16th, 2009, 06:58 PM
I installed Kubuntu 8.10 a while ago, and have noticed that the panel has vanished. It does come back on after restarting, but it is blanked out (all widgets are gone) and it acts strange - the windows open but they don't show up on the panel !

I have installed all the latest updates but this trouble still persists. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What version of KDE are you running?

It's 4.1 Thanks.

Try adding some widgets to the panel. You can either Right Click the panel and choose "Add Widgets", or click the little yellow plasma icon on the right edge of the panel. The default ones are:

Application Launcher
Quick Access
Task Manager
Show Dashboard
System Tray
New Device Notifier
Digital Clock

The reason windows aren't showing up in the panel is because you're missing a Task Manager widget.
