Unhappy Application Icons disappeared!


What did I do?
The icons for my running applications have disappeared from the bottom menu bar.
Did I forget to pay my dues or, more likely, what stupid thing have I done?
Thank you

Which distribution in which version with which desktop environment are you running?
Some panels can be customized to not show icons, may be you have fiddled with something like that?

If you are using compiz that may do it. I am assuming by 'bottom menu bar' you mean the panel and not AWN or something.

I only guess compiz cause I messed with my settings once and it knocked all logos (except the system button) off my panel -It even took my clock :-( - and made my awn behave in all kinds of abnormal ways (it'd disappear, come back, flicker sometimes ... it was crazy). Other then that I have no other ideas and should be ignored.

Unless you're talking about Unity (which AFAIK is a Compiz plugin), then compiz doesn't really have anything to do with the panel.

Thank you for your quick reply.
I am running Linux Mint 10 on an old Dell Celeron desktop.
I took a look at the "panels" and haven't unearthed what I may have mistakenly hit, but don't remember being in there when someone came along and stole the icons from my bottom menu bar. (Does that have a "real" name?)
Thank you,
