Gnome-panel missing after etch upgrade


AMD64 -- Testing

As has been documented quite a bit here, there is a major upgrade in Debian Etch. Most of the comments I've seen are related to KDE 3.5. My problem is in Gnome 2.12.

Install using Kernel 2.6.14 was easy ... everything worked including the xorg 6.9 upgrade. Decided to go all the way and update the kernel to 2.6.15. Forgot to install the corresponding fglrx kernel module and when I rebooted, got 'xorg is not configured properly'. Figured I could run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and use the vesa drivers to work on fglrx. Imagine my surprise to discover that the screen density was better with this setup than it had been with 2.6.14 and fglrx drivers.

The Problem: I have no panel on Gnome at all. Investigation showed that it was not installed due to a library failure (libwnck18). I have every reason to believe this problem in the AMD64 repos will be fixed shortly, but I think I'll download the source and attempt to compile it myself. That's kinda tricky with no menu to work from. I think, though, that if I could get a terminal window, I'd be OK.

My real question:
Quote:
Is there a Keyboard shortcut that will open the gnome terminal window?
Obviously, I could open a text mode login, and maybe work from there, but I think it would be easier from inside Gnome. Any other suggestions about how to tackle this problem would also be welcome.

Never mind. I got it. Just located /usr/bin/gnome-terminal via the Desktop 'Computer' icon and double clicked it.

Got my panel back, too, although now I don't have sound, but I think I can probably handle that.
