View Full Version : [ubuntu] getting taskbar etc back

April 24th, 2008, 05:28 PM
One of my programs just crashed, and while getting it killed (using xkill command), my taskbar has gone (both at top and bottom). Does anyone know how to do this - I can't open a terminal as I can't access the ubuntu menu as it's not there anymore!!

Thanks for your help,

Alt-F2 will open a run dialog box. You can type gnome-terminal to open a terminal. I would try to reboot and see if that fixes your gnome panels problem.

sudo shutdown -h now

If rebooting doesn't help post back and we will help you get your panels back. Note Alt F2 and then typing firefox should open a web browser for ya:)
