The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_Panel_TrashApplet" What does it mean? What is OAFIID:GNOME_Panel_TrashApplet?


Should I click Don't Delete or Delete?

Click Don't Delete. Clicking Delete will Delete it from your panel, when sometimes you may want it. I suggest checking if it is even installed by trying to add it to panel. See RIGHT CLICK Panel > Add to Panel...

If it happens again or if it is not on the list try this:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-applets
  • Ah so it means just trash icon? but it never was on my panel before why I got this error?

  • Which Ubuntu Version is this? Also, If you are on 11.04 (using Classic) or lower, it was beside "Workspaces" on the bottom right.
