I've been searching for a solution to this but basically all my desktop panels are no longer visible after taking the latest update (250MB) from the server. This happens on both the Ubuntu 9.x and Xubuntu 9.x versions. I actually switched to Ubuntu because I figure it might be something the XFCE destop manager on Xubuntu but the exact same thing happened to me with Ubuntu. I am using VMWare and the image installs fine - works for a couple of days and then as soon as I apply the updates waiting to be installed the panels are all gone. Can someone please advise. I tried re-installing metacity and replacing the desktop but nothing works.
