Missing bottom bar (gnome)


Hi There,

I have recently installed a laptop with ubuntu 16.04 gnome edition.

One thing that is important to me is the bottom bar that I have on my desktop, and I cant remember how I got it to work.

The bottom bar activates on a hot corner, well actually the whole bottom of the screen is a hot corner, and it holds background applications like pasteit, and similar that do not show up on my top bar.

Anyone have an idea how this is installed or configured?

Look for "GNOME Tweak Tools" in the package manager. In the Tweak Tool's window, there's a page "Extensions". The extension "Bottom panel", or similar, is likely the thing you want.

Try this if it happens again:

Press Alt+F2, in text fild type 'gnome-terminal' (without quots) and click on 'Run'.

In terminal submit the commands below one by one. Select one line at a time and press 'Enter'.

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

Cepheus: The bottom panel extension is something different, it just brings the gnome panel from the top to the bottom.

On my desktop I have the gnome panel up on top, but this hot pocket activates a separate panel which holds background applications like clipit, and similar applications.

My problem is that I cannot configure, or make changes to applications like clipit, because when started they seem to go into background, and do not start any GUI. The application works, but this bottom panel is the only way I could get to its configuration page.

Any advice?

I just could check on a virtual fedora, and what I had in mind is called "Window list". But it has no option to auto-hide and only show on mouse contact.
