Thread: hidden / buried panel

  1. #1

    Default hidden / buried panel

    I selected the hide option for my panel at the bottom of my desktop, and it buried itself into a barely visible blue line.

    I added a new one on the top, and accidentally had the same thing happen.

    I have a last one on the side of the desktop, but obviously this is not optimal. How do I get the barely visible blue line to expand so I can delete or re-set it? Thank you.

    It seems that you are talking about using a desktop. But you fail to tell which Desktop Environment you use (KDE, Gnome, ..........).

    Must be KDE, talking about adding panels ...., not in GNOME or one of the others.

    @OP: Logout, at the login screen hit Ctrl+Alt+F2, it will show a login prompt. Login with your username and password and do:
    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.config/plasma*
    Hit Ctrl+d to exit
    Hit Ctrl+Alt+F7 to return to the login screen
    Login and you will be presented with the default plasma desktop.

    Thank you, that worked.

    For future reference, I take it there's no easy way to save all your desktop settings so you don't have to manually reset them?

    Well, for the Plasma settings, you can copy the plasm* files from ~/.config , but there's no guarantee that a restore will work in two years.

    Okay, it turns out it didn't work.

    It did wipe my settings, and give me a fresh panel, but the semi-hidden blue bars are still there on left and bottom. I've wiped that file twice, so they must be located somewhere else. Would love a way for force them into visibility.

    Either that, or I don't understand the autohide option. Is there some key that will open / unhide the panels? I think these dead ones are interfering with my cube animation as settings changes don't take effect.

    If I have 4 desktops, can I kill desktop #1?

    Not sure why but yes


    If auto hide is on you should get a blue line when mouse is close and panel should pop when mouse hovers over line. Not sure about side panels never played with them. One is plenty for me.

    I just get the blue line, but it doesn't pop up. I had to create a second one for functionality, and accidentally hid it the same way. Erasing the config file wiped settings, but doesn't seem to have killed the two problem panels. (And I can't hide them, obviously)

    How can I kill these two panels and get the auto hide working again?

    I think I have them on three sides, actually. Bottom and both sides. Quite annoying. I just tested it again... and wiping config will kill the three hours I've spent tuning the desktop effects (while not killing the panels). Great....
