XFCE won't load panel


Hey... XFCE has been working great. Now suddenly, when I log in as a regular user, it won't load the panel at the bottom of the screen. I also can't open the config options for it. When I try it as root, the panel loads up just fine. Any ideas?

Seems to me that there is a glitch in one of the configuration files of XFCE for your user.
Rename the folder ~/.config/xfce4 to something different, logout and back in again (or restart X) and see if it works with the automatically created default configuration.

You can run 'xfce4-panel' to have the panel back, then log out and log in. Make sure that 'Save session for future logins' has been checked. Hope it helps.
