Hi Fabby, thank you for the suggestion! I have just restarted again on my main account and there isn’t this problem anymore (not disappearance of the taskbar panel). Perhaps the previous times were due to improper forced shutdowns, and I have learnt how to use REISUB instead (thanks to your guide!)
Thank you Fabby again, and hope you have a great weekend
If that worked and you had no errors, remove the documents from your old user:
rm --recursive /home/jnjn/Documents/*
Templates, and everything else that is important to you.
Linux games like Battle of Wesnoth have their game data stored under ~/.local/share/ E.G. ~/.local/share/wesnoth/
After everything has been copied over, disable the old user so you cannot accidentally log on:
usermod --lock jnjn
If you would have theming going on, don’t do everything in one day but do this at the rate of 1 application / theme / whatever per day and if the same issue crops up again, roll back your last change and thus you’ve now pinpointed the exact setting that made your old user misbehave.
in 1 month delete the entire home directory of your old user, but don’t delete the user itself so that in 6 months time files still owned by that user will still show up under its username.
If you ever migrate to a new machine, just don’t migrate the old user: only the new one.
From now on, start making backups so you can roll back and never have to do this again:
