Finding the Red Hat Network Icon to Update system


Hi,

I have red hat 8.0 and I used to have on my task bar, the icon for the Red Hat Network update utility. Now it is gone. Does anyone know how to get it back on the taskbar? Thanks.

It's not there either. I don't understand. Yesterday it was fine, right where it was supposed to be and now it's gone.

In a terminal type:

rhn-applet-gui&

make sure you put the & at the end.

Hi,

Thanks but it doesn't stay there. How do I get it to stay on the taskbar indefinitely? Thank you.

What do you mean it doesn't stay there? You mean when you log out? If that is the case then just choose the 'save current setup' option when you logout. Then the applet will be there every time you bring up the desktop.

No, what I mean is, as soon as I close the terminal window, the icon disappears again. I want it to stay on the taskbar all the time like when I installed Linux the first time. I don't know why it has decided to stop appearing in the taskbar.

Did you put the & in there? This causes rhn-applet-gui to run in the background so that when you close the shell it does not go away.

nope, it makes no difference. I am now logged in as root and it doesn't make any difference. As soon as I close the terminal window, the applet disappears.

When you type in:

rhn-applet-gui&

and hit enter does it bring you back to a prompt?

Yes,

The prompt says:

[1] 7329


That is it, and again, when I close the terminal window, the update agent disappears

Okay well I bet if you issue a 'top' command you will see that rhn-applet-gui process is running its just not showing up in the task bar. Do you have other things in the taskbar? I know that sometimes my applet will disappear when another icon is introduced to the taskbar. That applet is a nice feature but its a little buggy. If you really want it there try taking everything else out of the taskbar.
