That sounds like you installed Fluxbox. That desktop works in a similar way. Do you remember what you installed?

i didn't install anything...i kind of irrationally started deleting programs after my taskbar disappeared thinking that I could reinstall everything and make it work that way. Now I "installed" a bunch of things using synaptic that never actually installed

I was just asking if you installed anything...

So from what I gather you don't have any taskbars?

no my taskbar was gone this morning. I don't know why. So I set out trying to fix it myself...but I think I made it worse.

Just log out or press control + alt + backspace if you have to and then when you come to the login screen click on sessions and just make sure it's on gnome (or xfce, whatever you were running before).

I would check first to see if the panels were deleted first then check to see if they were uninstalled.

Go to where the panel should be and right click. Check the menu that pops up to see if there is an "new panel" option. If there is select it and get your panels back.


If you don't have that option, open a terminal. Since you don't have panels enter "Alt+F2" and scroll down to terminal.


sudo apt-get install gnome-panel

See what that does. If you get your panels back you will need to add the app launchers by right clicking and "+ adding to panel" feature.
