I am using 10.04 Ubuntu.

How do i get the WIFI symbol back on my Panel?

I logged on to my HP Laptop and their was a box asking if
I wanted to keep some thing on my panel. The big word in the box was Gnome. I picked one of the 2 options and the box went awy. The next think I noticed was the WIFI symbol was not on my Panel.

I think you have removed the notification area from the panel.

Right click the top panel and choose "add to panel". Look for "notification area" and add it.

When this happens to me, I usually run

killall gnome-panel

and it comes back.

This will not work if you've removed the notification applet from your panel or something more serious.
