View Full Version : [xubuntu] Broken auto-hide panel

I put my application panel on auto hide, and now it won't appear when i put the mouse on it. Is there any type of command i can use on the terminal to make it appear?

I had both panels disappear completely with Xubuntu 8.10 a couple of times.

If you're able to get to terminal (right-clicking on the "Home" icon" on the desktop and then on "Open terminal here" should work if you can't get to your applications->accesories menu) you can then enter the following:

xfce4-panel &
Don't forget the "&". This should get your panel(s) back.
