SOLVED KDE desktop - minimized apps dont show in task panel

Post by lisapisa2 »

I am just starting with KED desktop and I am noticing that now when I minimize apps the dont appear in the bottom panel. They are there if I ALT TAB to them but when I click on minimize they dont show. What have I messed up?

Sorry if this hurts you in any way (I hope this doesn't), but it's KDE, not KED.

Hmm, maybe you accidentally deleted the task manager widget off your default panel. Try totally removing the panel and replacing it with the default one.

Hope this helps~ :)

Thanks,

It was a bug because KDE threw an error and then the panel disappeared. I recreated the defualt one and everything is fine.
