Mouse on the panel are not honored, mouse clicks on applications and on the desktop work
Submitted by Ada..@..gmx.de
This bug report pertains to xfce4 on Xubuntu 16.04.6 under Xubuntu 16.0.6 LTS currently under Linux kernel 4.4.0-145-generic x86_64.
It happened during my work that any mouse click directed to the xfce panel was not honored at all. Mouse clicks on the applications worked as usual. I also could start a terminal by right clicking on the desktop area and selecting a terminal window there. In unsure whether this is a bug of xfvce4-panel or one of xfwm4.
When I had the problem, I opened a command window and tried this command there:
$ xfwm4 –replace Waiting for current window manager (Xfwm4) on screen :0.0 to exit:
But it did not come to an end. When I had started a GUI based task manager, I could kill xfwm4, but another one was immediately started.
I was unable to access the button to shut down the computer, so I used the power button for that purpose. After I had rebooted, the system worked as it did before this bug happened. Unfortunately I can not give any more information about this bug (except if you tell me to search in special log files if there may be any interesting traces).
Just for reference, this is what this bug report is about:
