    Can't costumize gnome panel

    Hi.

    Since I upgraded to 8.04 I can't do anything on the Gnome panel. The only two options I get when I right click on any panel are About and Help.

    No Properties, no Add, no Remove, ...

    Any suggestion what might resolve the problem?

    On the Launchpad I found a similar case but the guy wanted to remove the panel but had the same problem as me:

    But I don't want to remove the panel. I just want my properties back .

    lp mk

    Are you able to drag and drop icons from the menu to the panel?

    It sounds like your gnome-panel is locked down. You can remedy this from gconf-editor. Start it from the quick launch dialogue (ALT+F2) or from the terminal:
    Code:
    gconf-editor
    Once the editor has opened, navigate to "apps" > "panel" > "global", and uncheck the key called "locked_down".

    Alternately, issue the following command in a terminal. (It does the same thing):
    Code:
    gconftool -t bool -s /apps/panel/global/locked_down false

    Forlong: nope .. I couldn't do anything with the menu.

    N.N.: Thank you so much ! That solved the problem. I was searching through keys in gconf-editor but I didn't find a solution.

    After changing the key, the panel must be restarted, which can be done with the following command:

    Code:
    killall gnome-panel
    lp mk
