Re: XFCE panel sometimes doesn't start, giving this error

You're not providing too much info, I'm afraid.

For example what does :

cat .xsession-errors | grep xfce4-panel

say?

If, for some reason, you suspect one of the panel applets (which I do) you could inactivate all, and then restart the panel. Then take one after one back until the problem occurs again.

To restart the panel from a terminal: xfce4-panel -r
(The panel will quit when you close the terminal- so don't close it)

This way of starting the panel gives you good information in the terminal.
