View Full Version : no launcher and status bar
27th December 2010, 08:48 AM
I installed fedroa 13 from a USB device to a brand new hard disk.
After firsdt reboot, I passed trough the 4 steps :
- License Agreement
- System User
- Date and Time
- Hardware Profile
the next reboot ended up with no launcher, no status bar, just clean desktop with 3 icons:
Trash, the user's home and "Computer".
I launched /usr/bin/gnome-terminal to try and upgrade to fedora 14, maybe it will resolve this situation.
but it will might take some time.
Where did I go wrong?:confused:

I do not know. Sorry. But there has been a lot of this kind of Gnome panel business in the last few days. Try restarting the panels with killall gnome-panel or starting the panels with gnome-panel or both.

the upgrade to fedora 14 succeeded.
but I have the same phenomena - no panel, just 3 icons on the desktop.
I run "killall gnome-panel" and then "gnome-panel".
it fails with the following text:
[root@feo-me-matxm-19516 ~]# killall gnome-panel
[root@feo-me-matxm-19516 ~]# gnome-panel
** Message: Could not connect to session manager: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SessionManager': no such name
** (gnome-panel:4495): WARNING **: Could not connect to session manager: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SessionManager': no such name
what does this mean actually?

i have an update,
i accidentally took a screenshot ( I hope it is successfully attached).
the panel is shown there with the status bar and adjacent to it on the right the actual desktop that I see.
so it seem that there are 2 desktops the non-visible (is the "regular" one that I would like to switch to), and the active one which is panle-less.
how can I switch to this panel using shell?

issue is SOLVED !!!
I got to the gnome control panel GUI, and looked at the status for "Monitors".
Once I checked "Same Image on all monitors" everything got back to normal state.
the resoltion is now low, but this is related to the H/W drivers, not fedora.
have a great day.
