Unhappy LX Panel crashing mysteriously after 6 restarts

Hello Linux know-howers;

My name is Michael, I'm from the UK but living in Austria and have begun a journey to learn programming and Linux so that I can use these skills to do some good in the world. I'm a bit stuck and would appreciate your help.

I'm currently experiencing an issue whilst trying to create a bash script that restarts the LXPanel so that the image I use for the background is updated (I'm trying to make a tool that keeps me focused on my current task and this was the best solution I could come up with) - I'm almost there but it seems that the LXPanel crashes ALWAYS after the 6th restart.

I've tried using lxpanelctl restart but it does not respond.

On inspection in /var/log/apport.log the error returned is that /usr/bin/lxpanel is blacklisted

Is there a way to take this program out of the blacklist and is there any way to find out why this is crashing only on the 6th attempt (I've tested this several times and it is always on the 6th)?

Please let me know if you need more info.

Warm regards,

Hey Keith,

Thanks for the response mate but I've decided to give up on this one; I was just really determined to get it finished but I've decided to just use a Xpad in the bottom right. It was a weird one but ironically I was making it to keep me focused but have ended up wasting so much time trying to get it sorted!!

Cheers for offering some help.
