Application docking stopped working in Gnome


Recommended Posts

I am not using KDE but GNOME instead.

After rebooting I got a message that an application list could not be recovered
I answered NO to the question Reload (y/n) since it kept failing to retrieve it.

Now whenever I minimize an application window it disappears into the nowhere-land, and it does not appear on my panel, at the bottom. Most of the minimized applications are accumulating inaccessible beyond my reach, and no way to reactivate them!


I checked ".gconf/apps/panel/toplevels/" directory for another user where it is working and I noticed that ".gconf/apps/panel/toplevels/bottom_panel/%gconf.xml" was missing todether with its directory "bottom_panel". I created the missing things, they are now identical for both users, of course also the ownership is correct. However, this did not change anything!


I remember this already happened to me once, and I had to reload the OS and my of course all my data and configurations. This is almost prohibitive at this point!


Does anybody know how to solve this problem.
