Under GNOME Redhat 7 things went fine for a few months, then suddenly
the following problem:
On iconifying a window, the window (and its icon) disappear. The
still running from ps, but there is nothing in the panel bar or
desktop to access it by.
I did a deja search on this problem and found several users who had
problem with GNOME. However, there was no actual answer I could use to
any of these problems:
1. One answer said to "add the pager applet to the panel" but there
is no pager
applet i could find under Utilities.
2. One answer said to modify configuration files, but it did not
state which configuration files.
3. Some answers stated to use KDE.
However, I only want to use my window manager for very simple tasks,
iconifying and uniconifying windows. I just don't need other themes or
any other functionality and don't want to reinstall a whole other
Does anyone know concretely what could be causing this?
I mean I was perfectly happy with GNOME until this problem started.
