This appears to be a problem as of 2015-nov-7 on DigitalOcean hosting. I used this technique to fix it.

comment lxpanel Application Menu Lost Icons
Didn't help in my case. I found the panels folder and I see the settings there, but they look default.

Maybe if I could learn what file makes this menu, it would help. I could see if the file is missing a parameter, for instance.

comment Is there an alternative application launcher for Openbox on Ubuntu 14.04?
This did the trick. I also liked how I could restyle it to almost look like the Chrome OS bar instead of the KDE appearance you have in your screenshot. I added a ~/.config/openbox/autostart file to launch this as well as nautilus on booting into Openbox.

I just need something simple like the old win95 start menu.

comment Easiest way to set up an IMAP mail server
Also, I found that if you get a prompt for SSL, skipping it will cause dovecot not to load. You'll have to do a self-signed SSL on the mail until you can replace with a real cert. Also, dpkg-reconfigure dovecot-imap doesn't work -- you'll have to do apt-get --purge remove dovecot-core dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d to remove and start over.

comment Easiest way to set up an IMAP mail server
Great answer. However, you might want to enhance this a little by explaining how to tell if one is using mbox or maildir formats, as well as the fact that on Ubuntu 14.04 Server, it uses Upstart for Dovecot now and so you have to do "start/stop/restart/status dovecot" type commands.
