In GNOME, hit alt+F2 , then type
gnome-terminal <-- to get a terminal
Check first in that terminal whether gnome-panel is already running,
but hiding, with either
pgrep gnome-panel <-- should return a number
ps aux | grep gnome-panel <-- should return a mess of
gnome-specific stuff that no-one but developers can understand ;-)
( AFAICS ;-) )
*If* neither (1) nor (2) return anything, run command (3) below and see
gnome-panel & <-- hopefully this will start your panel...
if the panel
already has a process number though (1 & 2 above), running "gnome-panel &"
might produce a fit of errors like " I've detected another panel
running and will now exit" This used to happen in earlier Ubuntu versions
sometimes on log-in .... I haven't seen it since about Dapper, IIRC .
If you *do* get output from (1) or (2), then try running
In theory that should make the panel re-spawn.
Let us know how it goes... If this succeeds, you will want to save your
session in "System -> Preferences -> Sessions" to make the panel reappear
on next login.
