mate-panel disappearing

Post by DarkNova » Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:57 am

I'm running LDME2 with the latest updates. mate-panel is version 1.16. In the past 48 hours my mate panel has disappeared from the bottom of the screen twice. I can see the wallpaper down there instead. If I click where it was, windows come up, so the panel is there, just not drawing. If I kill mate-panel then it appears back. Can anyone think of a reason this would start happening all of a sudden? Thanks.

Reads like you are having trouble with either the Compositing and/or the Window Manager . . :?
Suggestion (to determine if the C/WM is the cause):
Try using a different Compositor/Window Manager combination. Go to Preferences > Desktop Settings > Windows > Window Manager. Change the default setting to any of the others. (Eg: Marco + Compton)
Are you still getting the same effect ?
