taskbar/menubar/mintmenu missing

Postby pacemaker1280 on Fri May 25, 2012 12:10 pm

I just installed mint 9 isadora fluxbox. For some reason the menu doesn't exist at the bottom. There's still the bar that shows the tabs and the time, but the "start menu" on the bottom used to access programs isn't there. I noticed it wasn't there on the live cd test boot either. I've checked all the settings I have access to and can't find anything.

Anyone experienced this before? Know what to do?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Off the top of my head, you'll have to go to ~/.fluxbox/startup and comment out tint2. Then add in the xfce4-panel in place of tint2.

The entry below will be near the end of the ~/.fluxbox/startup file, and will need to be commented out. Then add in your replacement taskbar. Hopefully, the menu starts with the xfce4-panel, but I wouldn't know. Sorry I can't give you a step-by-step, but maybe this will point you in the right direction.
Code: Select all
tint2 -c ~/.tint2rc &

Don't forget the ampersand after whatever command starts the xfce panel (Probably /usr/bin/xfce4-panel.) If you have Synaptic package manager installed, look at the description box for xfce4-panel and it will tell you which additional entries (binaries) will need to be called in the startup file. Good Luck.
