I now have the dock beautifully sitting on my desktop but I still also have the panel.which shows open applications. I've set the panel to Auto-Hide, but it keeps coming up when my mouse moves around there - which looks repetitive. But again, if I were to disable the panel, how would I load other things - the dock only shows open applications, infact it doesn't even show appls that minimize to the tray.

You can add launchers to AWN for apps. There is also a menu plugin as I recall, and a plugin to shown minimized windows. It's been a long time since I've used it, so I don't know the details of setting it up.

thanks. i'm looking into this.
As for permanently getting the panel back, I'm taking a look at http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-restor...nels-in-ubuntu and hope we can get some solution here.

However, I'd prefer to have everything in the dock and to do away with the panel - guess that's what the dock is all about?

I tried what was explained in http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-restor...nels-in-ubuntu but no luck.
Even after rebooting the panel was not there. However, i loaded the gconf-editor and went to Desktop >> Sessions, double-clicked on "Required Components List" in the right-hand area and added a new "value" called panel. Rebooted the machine and ta-da!! the panel was there.

but I still do not see any additional applets in the AWN manager.
