Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

My Gnome Panel behaves strane, it just displays random parts of the background image and sometimes just lacks some icons:

How can I fix this?

This really looks like something you should report as a bug. If it's only affecting indicators, then you can do ubuntu-bug indicator-applet else do ubuntu-bug gnome-panel (you will need an account at http://www.launchpad.net).

I think you can workaround this by adding # before include "apps/gnome-panel.rc" in the file /usr/share/themes/the.theme.you.are.using/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.

I currently use a workaround called KDE, but I'll try it. –  Martin Ueding Jul 31 '11 at 5:08
Great workaround ;-) I for one just can't get used to push "Apply" at every change I made, therefore I stay with Gnome. –  desgua Jul 31 '11 at 17:59
