Budgie Desktop
« on: 13. December 2015, 21:20:02 »
I've been running the recent Manjaro Budgie edition and love it, but the last few times I've used it noticed the panel locks up and becomes unresponsive (the clock even stops)after about 30 minutes. Plank runs fine it just seems to be the bottom panel.  Any ideas?

You could try to debug it like that. Find out the name of the process with the task manager, kill this process, start the panel in the terminal, copy the output and post it here or better send it to the upsteam developers.

Thanks. I'm thinking it is budgie-panel.  I just rebooted.  If it happens again I'll xkill the panel and then relaunch from the terminal to see if that fixes it.

No, launching the panel from terminal wont fix it. It might provide information why it is not working properly.

I use Budgie desktop as well and it does the same thing. Open Task Manager and kill budgie-panel - it should restart the panel.

Maybe you can get some info on why this is happening before you restart the panel. That'd be helpful.

Also, just as a reminder, if you're on older hardware and you're close to using all your memory - making your computer noticeably less responsive - save any important work before killing the panel because I have been kicked off to LightDM and had to login again. It doesn't seem to log me out if I kill the panel's process when I'm not under any heavy load, but I would just be careful.
