    I can't help you, but my 9.04 clean installation was flawless.

    I'm curious to hear from the group what might have happened.

    Did you install the Netbook Remix or the standard desktop Ubuntu (or possibly Xubuntu, or used XFCE+NBR)?

    Was the desktop correct to start with?

    Have you enabled any unusual repositories?

    My panel misbehaves occasionally (see my post elsewhere), but the Gnome panels don't generally disappear.

    Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to gain access to a text console (your screen will turn black with a prompt in white text, and if not running from the CD you may be asked to login).

    sudo rm -rf ~/.gconf .gconfd .gnome2
    Press Ctrl+Alt+F7 (to return to the graphical interface).

    Restart X by logging out and back in, or typing sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart.

    You're settings are going to be restored to the default ones. This seems to be an issue with the desktop-switcher.

    I built the new settings for ume-config-netbook from bazaar trunk and that did seem to reconcile issues.

    I am using the default GNOME desktop without the bottom panel and the winoow-picker applet. This makes very good use of the real estate on my Dell Vostro A90 and allows me to use Compiz. Compiz and the netbook-launcher are not playing well together at the moment.
