I tried seeing If I had somehow deleted it from the whisker menu, I had a lot of choices to add in the panel, but not that one.
SOmeone once showed me how to reset the entire panel, but I can't remember now :footinmouth:

I TimeShifted back to June and found the icon were it used to be. I then updated and it seems fine now.
That was strange.

Well, I just did an update and upgrade through the terminal, and the icon is gone again.Is there a way to place it back on the whisker menu (well above it), or should I timetravel back again to get it?

You mean this?

Code: Select all

xfce4-panel -r
I use that so often that I have put an alias in ~/.bashrc

Code: Select all

alias pr='xfce4-panel -r'
Easy to remember since pr=panel reset.

Restarting it from the MX Updater entry in the whiskermenu should unhide it.
