Mate Panel Applets?

Postby 0x2620 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 2:15 pm

I did something and now a few of them don't appear on boot. I get an error message and I have to manually add them to the panel each time. I think maybe I deleted a configuration file somewhere. What are they called, where are they stored, and where are their configuration files stored?

You should be able to restore the panel to default configurations by opening a terminal and copy/paste the following:

Code: Select all

mate-panel --reset

I think it has something to do with transparency or not using the default system colors. It only does that when I change those settings on mate-panel.

I removed libre office when I recently installed LMDE2, and I think that removed a few python packages. They may be related to this.
