    I know in XFCE you can just add panels to your hearts content.. Try looking under administration for something..

    Re: Gnome-panels gone!

    not a very useful post, even though i mentioned "GNOME"...
    Problem still there...
    I know how to get panels back, i will simply delete my .gnome, .gnome2, and .gconf folder, and they will be back, but i dont wanna add all the applets again...

    Too late for this time but you can save your panel settings to prevent having to recreate them:
    To save:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --dump /apps/panel > ~/Desktop/panel_saved_settings
    To restore:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --load ~/Desktop/panel_saved_settings

    It may not work, but you could write a simple bash script and name it something like LoadPanel.sh:
    Code:
    gnome-panel;
    Then in the main menu, go to System > Preferences > Sessions. Then under "Startup Programs" tab, click "Add" and enter anything in the boxes except for "Command," which needs to be
    Code:
    sh ~/gnome-panel
    Hope that helps.

    Are you sure they are not still there and just invisible because your desktop is sized incorrectly? Have you tried creating new panels and seeing if they show up where you expect?
