ok guys i will file a bug report if somone helps me fix this first...ok what i did....if you have a fresh install of ubuntu how there is a panel on top and on bottom....well what i did was i moved the top one to the bottom...so there were two at the bottom...so i right clicked went to properties and then clicked auto hide on the upper panel.....ubuntu froze and i had to restart...now all i can see is one panel with nothing on it ...and i really do not know how to get around in terminal ...but it wont let me right click on the panel or anything to change setting add or remove etc....anyone done this before?...only reason i got on the net is i right clicked and made a launcher for firefox...luckly i had auto connect enabled

Calm down, this isn't a bug. You can add stuff to the panel by right clicking on it.

You can do the following command at the terminal to restore your panel default configuration.

Shutdown the current running gconf editing daemon for the user

gconftool-2 --shutdownDelete your panel current configuration

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panelKill the panel process

pkill gnome-panelLogout then Login again...
That it.

Hope it helps....
