I’ve a annoying problem with cinnamon. Sometimes the panel and menu disappeared completely. Sometimes the icons are still on top of it, but the menu is totally black (or just some lines) when i opened it. Sometimes i can’t see some applications anymore. To fix this i have to restart cinnamon (killall cinnamon or alt f2+ r).
The most times when this happend is when i have connected a second monitor, but also if i have +/- 10 applications opened with only my laptop screen. I’ve did a little test: When i’m opening 20-30 simple windows with a java programm with no content cinnamon crashes. But i doesn’t get a popup that cinnamon has crashed, just the top bar dissapeared.
Log files doesn’t tell me anything, only when restarting cinnamon.
First i though it has something to do with swap-memmory but it’s also happening when i have enouf ram left.
I really have no idea how to fix this and the internet couldn’t give me much information.
Could someone help me further with this?
