I installed Ubuntu Budgie for the first time with 18.04. I like it very much. I had some initial problems, but most of them have been solved. The one lingering problem has to do with constant crashes of budge-panel.
Sometimes it crashes and throws an error. Usually it restarts by itself if that happens. But sometimes it “freezes” (I can’t click anything in the panel at the top, raven won’t open with SUPER+N, etc…)
I can get it to restart if I use the “–replace” argument from the terminal. (budgie-panel --replace)
But when I run that command when the panel is unresponsive, it always outputs errors.
***@***:~$ budgie-panel --replace

I’m not sure what’s going on here, but this happens multiple times per day and has been happening since installation. I installed using the “minimal install” option from the 18.04 Ubuntu Budgie ISO.
If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.
