On the other account on my 8.04, after restart the gnome-panels are gone, I even tried running killall gnome-panel, no use
I know in XFCE you can just add panels to your hearts content.. Try looking under administration for something..
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 restore:Code:gconftool-2 --dump /apps/panel > ~/Desktop/panel_saved_settings
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:
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 beCode:gnome-panel;
Hope that helps.Code:sh ~/gnome-panel

in which directory under my home dir, my gnome applets, launchers on the panels and workspace count settings are stored? I had a problem with gnome-panels. Suddenly the disappeared, even killall gnome-panels couldn't make them back, now I made a backup of .gconf, gconfd, .gnome, .gnome2, .gnome2_private, and I just want to restore my launchers, and applets,...
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?
