My MBP 15" 2018's touch bar died few days back.

I read a lot of people suggesting to kill process "Touch Bar Agent". But, I don't find process "Touch Bar Agent" in the activity monitor, nor via grep in terminal.

Interestingly, my another MBP which has a working touch bar does not show process "Touch Bar Agent" as well.

I am running "macOS Catalina 10.15.6". Did apple change the process name in latest updates?

Edit: There are numerous post here which suggest to kill that process, suggesting the process used to exist in older releases. Example: this

  • Try looking for it in Terminal with the command ps -A | grep -i "touch bar" That will list all the processes that contain the words "touch bar" regardless of case. – Allan Sep 10 at 14:04
  • I checked that already, its not there.. – gyan Sep 10 at 16:01
  • Could this be why your Touch Bar is no longer working? Did you reboot your Mac? – Allan Sep 10 at 16:05
  • Yes, I tried mostly all solutions I found on internet. My other MBP, which has working touch bar, does not has this process.. – gyan Sep 10 at 16:07

Have you searched for "TouchBarServer" ? Maybe this is the process you are looking for ? Activity monitor

  • @gyan When I kill the process on my screenshot, the touch bar stops working. Have you tried search this process to kill it? – Chris Sep 10 at 17:05
