Install PyGame in OSX 10.8.5

I found very helpful instructions in this page while googling for the installing PyGame in Mac OSX 10.8.5. Saved good amount of time for me (I installed for Python 3.x):

brew install sdl sdl_image sdl_mixer sdl_ttf portmidi

brew tap homebrew/headonly

brew install smpeg --HEAD

pip3 install hg+http://bitbucket.org/pygame/pygame

Restore GNOME Panel in Ubuntu

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.
