    Re: Default panel, deleted some items by mistake, can't find them to put back

    As of the Lubuntu Lucid release there was no indicator applet support.
    Hi,

    I just pushed the first version of indicator-applet support for lxpanel
    into Maverick repository. It may take some times to appear in official
    repository, so I put it in Lubuntu PPA if people want to test it.

    Screenshot for people who doesn't know about indicator applet :
    http://people.ubuntu.com/~gilir/Lubuntu-indicator-applets.png

    You need to :
    - update lxpanel to version >= 0.5.5-4ubuntu2
    - install lxpanel-indicator-applet-plugin
    - install some indicator packages (like indicator-messages and
    indicator-application).
    - add indicator applets to your panel

    The support is not the same that for Ubuntu applications. For now, only
    Pidgin and gnome-power-manager have some support for them.

    It's also not by default on Lubuntu installation for now, since it's not
    memory free, not many Lubuntu applications used it and some useful
    indicators have hard depends on GNOME.

    Happy testing

    Simple method to bring back default panel:
    Move the old panel file out in case you want to reference it for your custom configs.
    Code:
    mv ~/.config/lxpanel/Lubuntu/panels/panel ~/
    Restart lxpanel
    Code:
    lxpanelctl restart
    Now we have default panel configuration including Shutdown button
    Notice config file panel is not created until you change the default panel configuration.

    I know to restore your panel setting there is a website where you can get a small .sh progame to restore to default, save you current setting and also restore your saved setup.

    very simple but got me back to where I needed to be after not locking the icons and letting my kids on the comp.

    I cannot remember the site but would be happy to email you the file if needed.

    Spill.

    Ubuntu is about sharing what you have and what you know with the whole community.Why email the script to one individual when you can attach it in your reply to this thread and share it with the world?
    On the toolbar of the Message: box is a paperclip icon ,click on it to upload/attach the script to your reply.Another way is to scroll down beneath the Submit Reply/Preview Post buttons Additional Options/Attach Files,click on Manage Attachments button,browse to the script and upload.

    Code:

    Change owner:group to the local account from root.
    Code:
    sudo chown owner:group  ~/.config/lxpanel/Lubuntu/panels/panel
    Code:
    lxpanelctl restart

    This worked on LUBUNTU 11.04

    in case anyone didn't realize, the power applet on lxpanel is actually just another "application launch bar", with "shutdown" as the application. however, "shutdown" is not in the list of application. if you want to add an application to this list, it needs a *.desktop file, and instructions for doing so are here: http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=113

    yea restarting the panel should do the trick. It should not have to come to having to do that though. It should be simple to drag and drop icons into the lxpanel, and customize it without having to open up terminal and once again running codes.

    It slightly defeats the purpose of a GUI in my opinion, but hey i guess whatever works...
