Restore GNOME Panel in Ubuntu

Leave a comment

If you accidentally removed the panel in Ubuntu (I believe it should work with any distro with GNOME desktop), follow these steps to restore the default GNOME panel:

Open terminal (if there is no place to click, press Alt-F2 and run gnome-terminal).


gconftool-2 –shutdown (OR gconftool –recursive-unset /apps/panel)

rm -r  ~/.gconf/apps/panel

pkill gnome-panel

You should get your default panel back.
