missing panel

Hello, I just installed Debian 10 on my laptop. The only desktop I chose during the installation process was xfce. Debian and xfce have always worked great for me in the past. But now, every time I log in, I get this message:

No running instance of xfce4-panel was found

... and when I click on the "Execute" button, I then get this message:

Modifying the panel is not allowed because the panel is running in kiosk mode [...].

Obviously, I want the panel to just appear when I've logged in, like it always has done for years. Can anybody tell me what I need to do to make this happen?

Re: missing panel

Thank you eriefisher. I did as was suggested in the thread, and now the panel seems to behave well on login. Diff check between old and new ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml files doesn't seem to offer much enlightenment:

$ diff ~/old_xfce4-panel.xml ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml
18a19
>         <value type="int" value="4"/>
38a40
>     <property name="plugin-4" type="string" value="battery"/>

... so I think there must have been something in ~/.cache/sessions that was causing the problem. Anyhow, all's working well now. Thanks again eriefisher smile
