I have many small programs that display their instance inside the taskboard of gnome like teamviewer or insync.

Normally they are shown in the taskbar.

So now I have noway of opening these programs.

enter image description here


Try killall for the individual programs before trying to run them. That must do the job.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer. Indeed, I could kill them. But the point for me is that I shouldn't have to kill them all on system Startup. I'd rather just be able to see the running applications. :D – Jamie Hutber Dec 11 '18 at 17:10
  • That is a design flaw, I believe. Hope it does not bother you too much. – Aprameya Dec 14 '18 at 14:48
  • Ye, sadly it means I cannot use these problems. I've not found a way around this situation yet, so i think I'll need to switch back to Mint, which is a shame. – Jamie Hutber Dec 14 '18 at 20:12
