Taskbar disappeared!


Hi all!

Just coming back from work and my taskbar is nowhere to be found. Is there a way to bring it back up without logging out? I am runnin kde - FC2.

As always thanks for any help!

PS - This is what I got from /var/log/messages from today - are those DHCP requests normal or someone gained access to my comp?

Just go ahead and log out.

If that doesn't work, restart KDE.

If that still doesn't work, you may need to hand edit a KDE config file somewhere.

For SUSE, you right click on the desktop, and you chose the option to run a command. Type "kicker" without quotes and this starts up the taskbar again. Dunno it FC2 has such an option when you right click.

Yes it dows. It's the same for KDE in all distros. Alt+F2 ---> graphical command line opens ----> enter "kicker" and voila!

here's the kicker

I had the same problem with my task bar. When I tried to restart it the error message I got was 'kicker is currently running'. I thought WTH? Then by accident I hit ALT+F1 after reading other fixes and using ALT+F2 to bring up the run command window. So apparently I have subconsciously hidden my task bar several times. I believe my task bar hides when I'm closing multiple apps. because when I'm done the task bar was playing hide n' seek.

Are you definitely using KDE?

Yes, I pressed alt F2 after clicking on the desktop. It is titled as run.

Welcome to LQ, 24k9robot.

Can you please start a new thread in the Linux-Newbies forum and provide more info on your system, your distro and the actual errors you encountered.

Necroing two old threads on the subject at the same time is not recommended.

Did you enable swap? You're probably low on RAM and things go bye when that happens. Otherwise try tint2, a taskbar that you can add to wm's that don't have task bars. Perhaps good enough to get you an xterm so you can take a look around and figure out what ails you.

How do I enable swap? Also I haven't had a taskbar for about 3 days now and I tried rebooting at least twelve times. Luckily I put the logout button on the desktop. Please help me.
