Minimize apps gone ??

Postby polsci36 on Wed Feb 10, 2010 10:36 am

Hi folks, I am kind of new with Linux and need some help, I am currently running Mint 7 with Gnome been using for many months and like it a lot. But yesterday for some reason I open any applications such as Firefox, My computer, Open office etc, When I minimize them the windows are gone nothing show on the task bar. My task bar is still there I can see Date, time and mint menu and other things I add in there But no applications that I open on the task bar and minimize them. I had to keep open the new one every time and it kind of very difficult to run applications over and over. This never happen before, I can click on the open apps to bring it up, try to use Alt+Tab still nothing not sure what went wrong. Try to add new panel still the same thing. Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
