I had an unexpected reboot during the last update (which I was doing in the desktop environment and not a TTY, I didn’t knew about that before). After rebooting the system and continued the update, I noticed that there was a problem with the XFCE panel: some icons had reverted to another theme, and there was no way to change them back.
Suspecting it was because of the reboot, I opted for a full reinstall with
pacman -Qnq | pacman -S - This solved the issue with the theme, but since then I noticed more issues:
- The launcher icons are wider with a two rows panel:
- When I minimize/maximize windows, the panels appear to be killed and restarted. If I do it too fast or too many times (I’m not sure which option) the panels stay dead.
I tried another full system reinstall from a TTY, but the problems persist.
After looking a bit more in depth in the update I’m not sure if the problem was caused by the reboot or by the update to XFCE itself. I’m considering just formatting the system (I had just formatted it a few weeks ago), but if it’s an issue with XFCE I fear it may reappear.
My system is:

EDIT: I have found this post with a similar issue. The command as stated there doesn’t work for me, but I’m looking for a way to try that downgrade.
