Well, you just need to launch gnome-panel.

The easiest way would be to try Alt + F2 and then type gnome-panel

If that doesn't do it (I think gnome-panel has to be there in order for Alt + F2 to work), you could open that folder you have on the desktop.

In that folder, navigate to the /usr/bin/ directory.

Once you're there, look for gnome-terminal.

When you find it, double click on it to launch it.

Then, in your terminal, type gnome-panel & disown.

If it tells you that gnome-panel is already running, you could try:

killall gnome-panel

It should come back immediately.

It worked. Thank you.

It showed up that the panel wasn't installed :confused:
After I installed it, I ran the gnome-panel & disown it worked again.
