The process starts up again without error, but I still have no taskbar. I'm in the process of filing on bugzilla, so I'll add that in. While testing for this the problem actually got worse, after plugging in and activating the external monitor, the task bar flipped back to the laptop display, when I removed the monitor, the task bar vanished from the laptop display again! I tired leaving the monitor connected so that the task bar was on the correct screen and logging out/rebooting without the external monitor, but the task bar was missing again when I logged in. Even if I placed the task bar in a new position on the laptop screen (on the left side instead of the bottom), it vanishes again the moment I unplug the external monitor. Basically, I now can't find any way to get the task bar to display without the external monitor plugged in by "normal" methods. However, I think I've found a work around which will do for now: - Edit ~/.trinity/share/config/kickerrc - Change the value of the XineramaScreen parameter to 0 - Kill and restart the kicker process Seems to do the trick.
