I lost the panel “Activity manager with only icons” on th top of my desktop in Antergos. Is it possible to regain it or do I have to reinstall my system?
My panel is gone on top of my my desktop
If you’re using Kde, and it lost desktop wallpaper and panel(s) but applications still continue to work - may be launched with keyboard shortcuts - then there’s a simple solution, which usually works in all distros:
Simply delete the ~/.cache folder.
Many applications’ surrent state will be lost, but Kde desktop will return to work normally. You’ll also gain from 700M to 1,2G of disk space.
In my main Xfce installation I’d gain directly 488 MB of disk space, but I don’t have many applications installed. Naturally, applications will again start using that space, but I suppose net gain is still something.
System info commands:
sudo fdisk -l
