View Full Version : [SOLVED] Help:deleted default menu by mistake

June 9th, 2010, 02:34 AM

I accidently deleted the default top menu bar (I wanted to delete an applet, but instead deleted the entire menu bar. D'oh!!) How can i get it back?

Ubuntu 9.04

Not sure about 9.04, but in 9.10 and forward, you right click the panel, choose "add to panel" then choose "main menu" from the list.

Thanks. That worked. Now i need to get the little internet connection applet back, the one that looked like the 4 bars in the corner, think its called networkmanager applet?

OK to get the network connection applet back I did some searching and found:

I had to go into /etc/NetworkManager/ and then right click on "nm-system-settings.conf"->properties->open with->text editor.

I then sudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf and then changed "managed=false" to "managed=true" and then save it. Reboot. To get the applet to appear on the top panel, I had to put mouse pointer over top panel, right click->add to panel->Notification Area.
