[SOLVED] Some icons in notification area do not load in xfce top panel

This behavior only happens from time to time, it is not always like this but still it is annoying this situation.

So when, it happens what I do is to restart the panel with the following command:

xfce4-panel -r

However, I would like to know a definitive solution so that the above mentioned situation does not happen again.

One thing I tried is to add this command among the tasks to run every time I start the computer in "Session and Startup" in the "Application Autostart" section but unfortunately it generated the same problem, some icons did not appear in the notification area. So I have no idea how to predict this situation, it only happens sometimes and I have to enter the same command to restart the panel.

Thanks for the help

Until you'll find a solution to your problem, you can create a launcher with the same command.
It comes very handy when you set up, customize a new distro, including your panel. (I have 4 of them)
I keep the launcher in my home folder.

I have done it @agashamu, thanks for the suggestion. In the meantime I will wait for the final solution.

Hi @Tamaranch thanks for the help, I did not respond earlier because I wanted to see if the solutions to this inconvenience took effect, and the one that I think is, accommodated my system was to remove ayatana-indicator-application as I have seen that when I reboot the system the icons in the notification area load without missing one, thank you. I no longer had to restart the top panel with the command mentioned above.
