Hello,

Are you sure you just didn't set it to autohide? If you move your mouse to where it used to be then it'll reappear. If not then you must have closed it. Mouse right-click anywhere on the desktop and select Add panel will show a panel on the desktop, which you can then configure to your needs.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

This happened to me once too, and I only got it back adding a new panel. When you add a new panel (at least as far as I know), you'll have to add the widgets you need/want also. Otherwise you'll just have an empty panel. Right click on the panel itself and select Add Widget (I'm assuming you're using KDE, right?). In the widget list select the Task Manager widget and if I'm not mistaking, you're running apps will be listed in the panel again.

Kind regards,

Eric

I'd assume he's using GNOME, that's the default in Fedora.

Also, GNOME has two panels by default, KDE has only a bottom one by default.

Oops, no experience or availability to test in Gnome. Thanks for the heads-up!

Kind regards,

Eric

I don't use GNOME any more either so I don't know if I can help.

First, try this command:

Code:
killall gnome-panel
If that doesn't fix it right-clicking on an empty spot on the remaining panel and seeing of there is anything called "add new panel" or "panel preferences" or something like that.

Just try whatever you think fits. You can always rearrange and remove panel applets.

I just had the same problem due to a power outage. My original panel appears if I type in gnome-terminal, or turn off "Fallback mode":
Code:
[barry@Fedora ~]$ gnome-panel

(gnome-panel:2327): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_accelerator_parse_with_keycode: assertion `accelerator != NULL' failed

** (gnome-panel:2327): WARNING **: Unable to parse mouse modifier '(null)'
But disappears if I close gnome-terminal.
