I was moving a picture to the trash but dropped it on the panel instead and it did some really weird things. In the process of trying to correct this problem, I accidently deleted my bottom main panel.

I was able to create a new one but I can't seem to get it to look and perform the same. Is there a way to reset it to like it was originally?

Okay, so you've recreated the main panel and added all of your settings and the menu doesn't work the way it did. Unless you missed a setting along the way the only way I know of resetting the main menu settings is to re-install the OS, I am pretty sure there is a easier and quicker way, but I don't know it.

Open and terminal and use.


killall gnome-panel

That will restart the panel.
You should be able to add back the bottom panel applets.

However to really get it back to default.
