Well my problem is that, lately it happens a lot. When i turn on, nothing appears(wingpanel,dock) but only my wallpaper. It's tiring to restart all the time the pc, and sometimes it doesn't even load on second or even third restart. I tried once to re install pantheon via terminal (alt f2) but still happens Any solutions?

This is a known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/elementaryos/+bug/1596377

This is the workaround: Significant lag loading panel and dock after login (Loki)

mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.disabled


This should help fix the issue without having to do a full reboot.

  • switch to a console.

Ctrl + Alt + F2

  • enter the following command.

    sudo service lightdm restart
