Taskbar/panel suddenly broken on zorin lite?

Title. There's... Really no other way I can describe this. I switched layouts once or twice via zorin appearance to see which style looked better with my theme, and the taskbar suddenly vanished. It persisted between restarts, and when I tried to edit the panel I found this error.

Complete meganoob, 3rd day of using linux on my work pc, be kind.

Can you use Zorin appearance to set to a different layout, then tap the keyboard combo alt+F2 and enter into it

xfce4-panel --restart

Tap the enter key and the panel should appear.
And it should stay.

Already tried both of those. Same error.


sudo apt install --reinstall zorin-os-lite-desktop

And also this. No luck :frowning:

Kill the panel service:
xfce4-panel --quit and pkill xfconfd
Remove config files:
rm ~/.config/xfce4/panel and rm ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml
Start the panel with alt+F2



xfce4-panel --restart

That actually fixed it, thanks! there were a ton of errors and weird lag but taskbar's back. I have a new respect for people running lowend rigs like this now
