Unable to get the Taskbar after upgrate to Sonya 18.2

Postby tyway » Sun Oct 08, 2017 6:29 am

Hi,

I'm running Sonya and upgraded it today. I now see that the bottom taskbar is missing and I am given to work with panels.

I am not able to reset it to the old look with the taskbar at the bottom. No matter how hard I tried. The bottom taskbar was like the windows bar at the bottom.How do I get the bottom taskbar as I had in Mint 17 Serena.?

Please help!

Thanks in advance...

See if this helps:

Right click an empty space on the panel and choose Panel > Panel Preferences...

You probably want Length% at 100 if it isn't already there.

Now click the Items tab and see if Window Buttons is in the list (I'm guessing no.) To add it, click the big plus sign in the vertical section on the right, scroll down to Window Buttons and click it then click Add, then click Close.

My desktop doesn't have Wifi so I'm not sure what would need adding to get that back, but you can probably figure it out yourself in that same area.

Thanks a Ton!

I did find out that there were two things I was looking for. I did as you suggested and found the Indicator Plugin and Notification Area; this solved my problem.

Thank you for the assistance.
