    Missing task bar --- Fedora 30 XFCE desktop

    After a recent update the task bar is no longer present on the desktop. I can still conjure up menus by right-clicking on the desktop so I can still operate but not having a task bar is inconvenient (Fedora 30 XFCE desktop).

    Any suggestions for restoring the task bar?

    Press ALT + F2. You will get the application launcher. In that, type

    Code:
     xfce4-panel -r
    See if this brings back the task bar(s).

    Thanks for quick response. Tried xfce4-panel -r and got the following error message: Failed to restart the panel error sending message: broken pipe.

    Apologies. I got the error message after typing xfce4-panel -r in a terminal and not the application launcher as you recommended. Your suggestion worked and the task bar was restored.

    Thanks!
