    gnome-panels missing

    Hi,

    I am using the 8.04 and did a update a couple od days back. TOday, my gnomepanes are missing. killall gnome-panel does nothing. I have read through the forums and looks like a many others have had the same problem. I have removed and re-installed the gnome-panel w/o any success. How do I get back my panels? Any comments/suggestions are appreciated!

    Thanks
    Jimmy

    I had that problem a few days ago.

    Here's what fixed it for me:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get --reinstall install ubuntu-desktop

    $sudo apt-get install gnome-panel
    $gnome-panel

    This worked for me too. And it disappeared after removing evolution.

    Re: gnome-panels missing

    I have a similar problem. When I start the GNOME session I get all the folders and files from my home/martin folder on my Desktop. The failer showed up when I tried to remove a file typing> rm -r /home/martin/Desktop reaktor_5_keygen.exe.

    I tried to reinstall the GNOME DESKTOP

    $sudo apt-get update
    $sudo apt-get install gnome-panel

    without success.

    Re: gnome-panels missing

    Guys, when removing things, Synaptic will tell you everything else that depends on the file your removing.

    Some apps that are installed by default--like Evolution--isn't a wise thing to remove if you don't know what your doing yet.

    Read wiki, understand that just because a program is called "music player" doesn't mean it consist of files that only affect your system when playing music?

    I'm still a newbie myself, but you do have to take a little bit of time to realize your not in Windows anymore.

    If it's a simple error with your panel, like it's crashing, you could always just delete the configuration and it'll fix itself.

    If your panel is gone, then it's likely you removed it by uninstalling an application on your system.

    Thanks, you are perfectely right, but if you could be so kind and telling me where to find the configuration file that has to be erased I would be very pleased.

    Re: gnome-panels missing

    I have tried everything.

    gnome-panel restart
    killall gnome-panel

    Removed ubuntu-desktop and reinstalled
    My system is upto date.

    Right now I have the panels and are behaving the way it should. The panels did not come up 4 out of 6 reboots !!!! I have no clue what is happening. Any idea?

    I have even removed gnome and re-installed it.

    Thanks
    Jimmy
