Troubles with mate-panel in Mint 14

Troubles with mate-panel in Mint 14

Postby eldenico on Sun Oct 20, 2013 10:24 pm

Hello, I worked normally with my Mint 14 (Nadia) for three days, but when I restarted it, I can login normally, but it only shows the desktop but no panel at all (there is no start menu). When I type top on a console it shows mate-panel consuming a lot of resources and everything goes very slowly. Is there anyway to reset the mate-panel? I can access to the console using the shift+alt+F1 combination but I can't start the desktop.
I have tried using the mate-panel --reset but it doesn't work.
Please somebody help me because I need to restart the computer and I don't want to reinstall everything.
Thanks and best regards.
I'm runing the Nadia 14 in a Dell computer inspiron 1545.

Try running
pkill mate-panel
That should kill mate-panel and restart it.

Thanks for your answer; I killed the process and it restarted but it uses more than 2.4 G of RAM and more than 97% of CPU and the desktop doesn't start completely. The problem remains.
Thanks.

What version are you running? Short of removing mate-panel and using something else (eg. mate desktop with xfce4-panel), up/downgrading mate to another version would be the best fix.
