After in-place upgrade, taskbar is at top of screen - SOLVED


I'm running 4MLinux in a Virtualbox.

Previous in-place upgrades always kept the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. After the last in-place upgrade (from v38 to v39), the taskbar is at the top.

I'm sure there's a way to move it, but haven't been able to figure out how (or find any help on the internet).

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

The Wbar has consistently stayed at the top everytime I've done an in-place upgrade. I prefer it at the top.

The problem 'bar' is what I call the Taskbar - the one with the start menu icon on it, which also shows open apps. This is the one I'd like to return to the bottom of the screen.

Thanks.

You must restart X (or reboot).

That does move the wBar to the bottom of the screen.

The attached image shows the bar I'd like to move back down to the bottom. It had always been at the bottom of the screen prior to the last in-place upgrade. I can't figure out how to get it down there.

Thanks.

Not sure how it happened, when or why it happened, but when I opened up the VDI today the 'taskbar' had migrated to the bottom of the screen.

Thanks!
