since I can not find a way to recover Wishker menu, I like to remove the panel all together and reinstall it , I was offer that option for LInux Mint, but I'm on Debian 10 . or could some one please look at this code see if it will work on Debia  [  xfce4-panel --quit ; pkill xfconfd ; rm -rf ~/.config/xfce4/panel ; rm -rf ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml ; xfce4-panel ]

Re: [ SOLVED ] how to remove and reinstall the panel

The command it stopping the panel and xfcond, then removing the configuration file and restarting the panel. This would be unique to XFCE4 and not the OS. Mint is a loose base of Debian so I don't see any reason it won't work. You may want to have a look at the files before you delete, it might reveal some info. Another thing is just to rename those files(.bak) and restart. They should be recreated on a restart(which is what xfce4-panel is calling)

EDIT: Run the command as a normal user not root.
