Try this in Terminal
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install gnome-panel
This might help or might not, worth a try though.

Sounds like you deleted more than I thought. Bare with me as I'm at work at the moment, on night shift and I try to get on here when I have done all my chores. I will have to do some digging around on my end to see what it is you accidentally deleted. I will get back to you as soon as I can, or there maybe some one else who can help you further, whilst I'm away digging through files. I was the same when I first got into Linux wondering what would happen if I done this or that?? I still tinker now, but not so much as I used to, mainly with other Linux Distros.  ;D

could you get into Peppermint Settings Panel by right clicking empty space on the desktop?

Hello. I have turned my laptop back on and the task bar is gone.

 I cannot reach the package manager to try and resolve this... honestly i think it was my fault as i deleted one of the xfce packages in the software manage.

I am stuck at the main desktop. What do i do?

Hello Hankishenry,
Can you right click the desktop and click on
Code: [Select]
launch Peppermint Settings PanelThen click on
Code: [Select]
Tweaks On left hand side.
The first box on the right is
Code: [Select]
Reset Panel To Default Click that and it should come back.

This might solve it but the question is still deluding by how did this happen in the first place? Plus if what I have posted above solves it any chance you could type in terminal
Code: [Select]
inxi -FzThen paste it here in your post for us please? It gives us some info about your hardware no personal info just what you're running hardware wise. Many thanks.  ;D

User Submitted Tutorials / How To Take Photo Of Slick Greeter
« on: April 26, 2020, 08:09:18 pm »
Ever wanted to take a picture or screenshot of your login screen, for future reference, like the one below??

All you have to do is when you get to the login screen 
Code: [Select]
Is Push PrtSc Button On Your Keyboard
The only problem is, is that it saves it as root and as lightdm owning it, plus it is not in your home folder.
It's in
Code: [Select]
/var/lib/lightdmOpen file manager left click File System.

Then double click var folder.

Then double click lib folder.

Right click lightdm folder you will have to scroll down to find it as folders are in alphabetical order.

Left Click Open As Root.

Pop your password in the box that comes up and you should see another window pop up titled Elevated Privileges.
Right click screenshot and choose properties.

Left Click the Permissions tab.

Left Click the box next to Owner find your username in the list.

Left Click your username.

Left Click the Box next to Group.

Again choose your username again Go on be a Devil  :D

After doing so click close.

Right Click screenshot and Left Click cut.

Click On home.

Then Double Click Folder With Your username written underneath.

Find some empty space and right click and left click paste

Close Elevated Privileges Window, then push home in your normal File manager.
You should see it in there, waiting for you to have a look at.

And finally here is mine.

And here is the back end.

I hope this tutorial helps anyone out wanting to take a photeaohgraaaphh of their login screen. This only works in Slick-Greeter, don't try doing it in normal Lightdm it won't work, though there is a way to do it in there too, but will take me ages to write tutorial for.  :D

Installation / Re: 32 bit EFI installation possible?
« on: April 16, 2020, 07:06:14 am »
Hello Tinkerdoc, here is a ISO that PCNetSpec done for weird computers with 32bit EFI and 64bit processors. I'm also  guessing you cannot upgrade Ram to 4GB to run a 64bit ISO? Because the EFI is 32bit.,7979.msg85605.html#msg85605

I of course had no luck with this ISO with my computer tablet, which has Windows 8 on. Intel made the processor to only run Windows 8 unfortunately. The link above explains more. Kind Regards  ;D Ah did not read all the post you have already tried this sorry.

I put mine in
Code: [Select]
/user/home(hidden files)/.local/shareName the file fonts instead of .fonts that goes in Hidden files in home folder. You can do the same with any Linux.  ;D

Blimey the bloke in the video near the end looked like he'd just forged a dollar, the way he was looking at it. An hour hey, at least you had the right tools to fit the panel. All I want to do in mine is change the hard drive, can't even see it. Hidden away deep inside. Loved the makeup video too and laughed my head off, she has a really good sense of humor.  ;D

I have a Optiplex which was reconditioned from Amazon. It's so compact inside that trying to get at the hard drive bay to change to a SSD is a nightmare. Half of it's innards has to be removed to get to the hard drive. Knowing my luck I'll end up with extra bits, that won't go back in. Ikea furniture is the same. :))

I'm actually puzzled to see why you have so many swap partitions? If you're only installing one Linux OS then one swap file will do. In 18.04 which Peppermint is based on you don't actually need a swap partition, as the OS will automatically cater for what Ram is needed, for each task. You only need swap if you have 1GB of ram or less and as you have 8GB of Ram then you don't need swap. I'm just wondering whether or not a fresh install without swap might fix it? I also need to ask on the installation USB did it display the default Wallpaper? If so then something during install went wrong and my advice is boot up the USB install image and  post back whether or not the default wallpaper is displayed? If it does display wallpaper, then I highly recommend a fresh install. Boot to the desktop on the USB then install from there, instead of choosing install from the grub list. Give this a try and get back to us with results. The thing is with Linux is that it's fun, sometimes annoying, but computers are all about having fun and that's what I love about Linux and computers in general.  :)

Hi Linuxmade88,
In Terminal could you post the info from command below, as it will give us a little more info on which display driver your system is defaulting to.
