Xubuntu taskbars have disappeared


luckily i didn't remove gnome earlier today, but i was making a launcher for Abiword in one of my toolbars, and i tried to move said launcher, and the toolbars dissapeared. I clicked around the edge of the screen, logged out and back in and they're still gone. I can see the desktop and files on it and everything, but i can't see the toolbar. how do i fix this?

This Xubuntu user had problems with his desktop icons disappearing. Perhaps the same config tool will help get your system tray back.

That link looks more like Gnome than xfce, so that's probably not the answer. If there's a way to get to terminal try running xfce4-panel. It will only run as long as the terminal is open, but if you save the session when you logout it should start when you log on again.

You might try setting xfce4-panel to run under the autostart. Assuming the newest version of xfce acts similiar to the last version, any executable in the directory ~/.config/autostart will run when you start xfce. You can make a symbolic link to xfce4-panel or just make a text file that says "xfce4-panel &" and make it executable. To get to a command line to make the changes you can hit ctl-alt-f1.
