View Full Version : Panel items not available message won't go away

I'm running Fedora 9 on a Thinkpad T61p.

Ever since I upgraded from Fedora 8, whenever I log in, I get a message stating:

Some panel items are no longer available
One or more panel items (also referred to as applets) are no longer available in the GNOME desktop.
These items will now be removed from your configuration:
You will not receive this message again.


Except... as I said, this message pops up every time I log in. I can't figure out what's causing it, and while it's not really hurting me (I just click ok), it's annoying.

Any ideas what it could be? Any information I can provide to track this down?

Thanks for your help!

the "upgrade" part is the problem. Wipe out the entire content of the partition, and do a fresh install...

Um. That's really not my first choice of how to approach this issue. I'd really rather just figure out what's wrong and fix it than knock my computer out of commission for a day or so.

Had the same problem with upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10 just now.
Easiest way I found to get rid of it was to delete the offending panel (for me it was the top panel) and put a new one in - with the applets I actually wanted.

Doesn't get into the guts of the problem but it is a 3 minute solution.
