Try running
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall peppermint-panel-reset
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/bin/reset-xfce4-panel
again.

If you now get output from that last command, try running
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/reset-xfce4-panel
and see if it fixes your panel ?

This command in the terminal tells us about the hardware you're using  ;D



Code: [Select]
inxi -F

That's true, but if you post its output here within the forum, use this command instead.  This command helps protect the poster's privacy.

Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

@safn1949

For your own privacy's sake, modify your post by using the above command, safn1949.  We're trying to change this old bad habit around here. ;)

I forgot the z sorry  :(
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

That's okay, clatterfordslim .  I've got a feeling our new friend, safn1949, may be dealing with bigger problems than that.  Anyway, he's in good hands with PCNetSpec. :)

That worked... :)   excellent,thank you.

Any idea how to fix the update mess I posted, every time I try to run updates it shows that error. That caused this problem I'm sure.

No I'm not after the terminal output .. I'm after the contents of the file that opened when you ran that command.

Okay first let's backup your current sources.list file:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.broken
Now open sources.list for editing:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list
make it read:-
Code: [Select]

(be sure to get all of that, it scrolls)

SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Now do you get any errors from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
?

You're most welcome :)

I've done this one for you, but in future when you consider a topic (SOLVED) can you please remember to mark it so. To do this edit the FIRST posting in your topic and append (SOLVED) to the end of the "Subject:" line.

Thanks in advance :)
