I used to have something like this:

How can I get it back?

  • do you have this installed apt-cache policy xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin? – JoKeR Jun 23 '15 at 15:24
  • I think so: "$ sudo apt-cache policy xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin: Installed: 1.4.3-0ubuntu2 Candidate: 1.4.3-0ubuntu2 Version table: *** 1.4.3-0ubuntu2 0 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status " – NVaughan Jun 23 '15 at 15:28

Fixed it. Apparently Whisker Menu Plugin wasn't correctly installed on my system. I followed the following instruction from this page to reinstall it correctly:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin
$ xfce4-panel --restart
  • yes, that what you should've tried at first place to reinstall/reconfigure it. – JoKeR Jun 23 '15 at 15:45
