    Unhappy Lost taskbar

    Hi,

    Last week I installed Suse 11.0 from the Internet. While using it I noticed my taskbar* was lost. Now I always instruct my taskbars to disappear downwards. But this is a bit too much disappearing.

    How do I get my taskbar back. I have no menu button to call Yast or what ever. Only a plain desktop with three buttons (trashcan, printer and system).

    Abel.

    * Taskbar: The bar at the bottom of the screen where your quick start panel is situated and the "start" button and system clock (I don't hope I'm sounding too Wine XP)

    Hi,

    bcrisciotti:
    Sad to say, kicker does not work for me. If I do a run application (Alt F2) and fill in kicker nothing happens.

    caf4926:
    Will try your suggestions.

    Both, thanks for the replies.

    I would not know if I use kde3.

    Starting kde3 in kconsole and Alt-F2 has the same result. Nothing. I enter kde3 press enter, the window closes, and that's it. I don't see any (error) message on the screen.

    Hi. Kde3 is not an application/command but it is a whole desktop environment. So it makes sense that nothing happens running the command Kde3. When you log in at the bottom left side of the screen you see something about the session (sorry i don't have my linux box now). Are you running Kde3 or 4 from here? It is very essential. Anyway try to run kicker in a konsole and look at the feedback it returns
