View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] ubuntu 8.10 panel not working

October 31st, 2008, 03:40 AM
I just did a clean install of 8.10 on a Dell Inspiron 5100 and the top panel is giving me a problem I can use the Fire fox, mail, Help, VOL, and Date and time but nothing else, When I click on it it only highlights but doesnt drop down I cant even right click on any Items including the ones above, this also posses a problem that I cant turn off the laptop from the panel. Any help would be GREAT
Thanks Ben
