Hey, Where's the Xfce panel restart option?

If the "Restart" option is missing from the "Action Buttons" on the Xfce panel, read below to get it back.

The restart option is missing in the left photo.

Fix

Open a terminal window and enter these two lines:

xfcommand="xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /plugins/plugin-9/items"
eval $xfcommand"$(eval $xfcommand | tail -11 | sed 's/-restart/+restart/' | awk '{printf " -t string -s %s", $1}')"

Alternatively you can right-click the "Action Buttons" item on the Xfce panel and select properties.

And enable the "Restart" option on the following window.
