View Full Version : [ubuntu] Panel jacked-up after upgrade

May 25th, 2008, 07:03 PM
I decided to try the upgrade on cloned hard disk. There are a few problems, so I am going to try to solve those problems before going truly live.

This is the first problem I want to solve. I chose the upgrade option from the update manager. After reboot, the panel at the bottom of the screen is colored completely white, no notification area, notta. Until I right click, goto properties, and click on show autohide buttons.

The top panel is fine.

What could be causing this?

OK Gmail manager is now available. If I can get the other problems fixed, I am sold!
Somebody, anybody, hook a fellow Ubuntu user UP!

Drop to your terminal:

sudo gconftool-2 --shutdown
suro rm -rf ~/.gconf/panel
sudo pkill gnome-panel

Hope this will fix your panel problem.

Thanx for the reply!

It worked temporarily...until I rebooted. Now I can't fix it the way I did before.

There are a ton of updates to do ( I am using the cloned drive again )...I'll be back

Update fixed the panel problem, killed something else (virtual box)
