Sub_title: the tray / menubar /doc has gone missing
 

Hello

I'm working on a full hard disk installed 5.2.8 puppy with openbox and seem to have lost the tray/menubar/doc (select the best term for that bar at the bottom with menu on the left side and clocks etc to the right).

Anyone know how to get it back ?

Thanks

C

First thing to check.
Right click on open area of desktop.
desktop->desktop settings->Fbpanel configuration
Check the main settings.Make sure the ones circled in red look like these.

Me replying to myself

This is not a fix but it works. Puppy 5.2.8 uses openbox as its default window manager. By switching to jwm things are back the way thy should be.

Menu -> Desktop -> Desktop settings -> WM switcher ...
