• no way to have cinnamon panels!


    Installed all cinnamon packages and started cinnamon-session by lightdm: when I hit the “win” key the app menu appears but I have not panel/task-bar and icons/tray.
    cinnamon-settings panel let me add other panel but all of them are not visible and right click show me menu of desktop.
    Full screen windows let space for the panels on the border but they are not visible neither clickable…

    some hint?

  • is your resolution correct?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • yes, display on cinnamon-setting show me the correct resolution
    and changing theme some icon appears on the bottom left for part of a second…

  • Is your monitor configured properly to display the entire resolution?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • yes, monitor it’s ok
    I’m coming from gnome-session and there it work fine

  • Is this a new problem, was it working before?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • It’s a fresh installation, I wanted to switch to cinnamon from gnome
    I’ve already tried to remove and re-install all the cinnamon packages with lightdm service stopped
    and settings cleared by “gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon”

  • Ok then. I don’t what else to try, sorry about that.

    Maybe someone else has an idea,

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • thank you Fedorai,
    I wait for other suggestions, in the meanwhile i will work without panels :(

  • Found something interesting: running cinnamon-session without lightdm makes panels reappearing!
    I think I’m going to try another display manager…
