Try booting into recovery and after login try install ubuntu-desktop package this should pull in any missing packages including gnome-panel.

apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

i keep a copy of it on my usbkey for this exact reason :)

rapidshar is a link to gp.desktop that is a link to gnomepanel program incase you havn't uninstalled it, just removed it.. then attached file is the .deb

wont let me attach .desktop files? hence the rapidshare

/tmp/gnome-panel_2.24.1-0ubuntu2_i386-2.deb could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.
