View Full Version : [ubuntu] crashing menu bar

February 16th, 2011, 09:17 PM
I rebooted my computer and there was strangely 2 audio icons next to the clock. I right clicked 1 and removed it from the bar. Now I can t seem to get that bar to quit flashing. I tried the recovery console. to repair any broken packages. Still flashing. I can't seem to get any programs open. What could be causing this issue and how I can fix it?

Are you talking about the (usually upper) gnome-panel?

If so, try resetting them from within the console:

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
Following your post, I suppose you know how to get to the console and switch back to GDM.
