How to recreate Gnome panel


Hi guys

I m using Red Hat Enterprise Edition , One of my friend deleted all panels from desktop , now i can see only Time , Start menu and logoff.

When i open or minimize a file i cant see it besides the red hat , i dont know where it goes.
But i can get it by pressing Alt+Tab

So how can i recreate my panel.


Thanks in advance
Tulip

You could start with by deleting all Gnome entries at your home directory (ex: rm -rf .gnome*). Next time you login, Gnome will reset all your configuration files to default. It might be a good idea to create a guest account if you are sharing your PC with other users. If something goes bad, simply remove the user and it's home directory, then create a new user again.

If you have no panels, you can Go to Desktop -> Preferences -> Sessions -> Startup Programs -> enter "gnome-panel" as the program and "40" as the order number. When you log out make sure you save your session and the next time you boot into GNOME, gnome-panel will start.
