I am using ubuntu 10.04 beta 2. I accidentally deleted all the panels. Now I see the desktop background filling the entire screen. I want to bring at least one panel into view.
This never happened with previous stable releases of ubuntu. It is impossible to delete the last panel because if I right-click the last panel there will not be any menu item called "delete this panel".

It may well not work but does running


gnome-panel

work, or does it say it is already running?

Strangely on my Beta the delete panel on the last panel IS greyed out.

+1, it's grayed out for me too.


if the panel is running & you still can't see it try to restore the default ones:


gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
killall gnome-panel

This code worked.

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
killall gnome-panelActually the panels were filled with same background color as desktop. So they were not visible
