Simple task bar panel restore

To restore the taskbar panel is simple. Press Ctrl Alt T to open the Terminal. Type cinnamon-settings. Press Enter. When system settings pop up, click on Panels. When panels options come up, choose create panel. Then press the button to activate the selected panel, and there you go. Taskbar restored. It took me about 5 hours to find the 2 minute video that shows you how to do this.

toddly, this thread is nine years old and refers to a different panel (GNOME Panel, not the Cinnamon panel).

Normally you should only add to an old thread like this when you have relevant info to add to the original question, not a different one.

This whole thread was painful to read.

any info is good info? Maybe not.

Hydrurga,
I posted my reply for newbies such as myself, who don't know the difference between gnome and cinnamon, and wouldn't even understand the implications if we did know. I spent five hours trying various Linux advice, including this thread about the gnome panel, because I didn't know it was not relevant to my system. Perhaps, just as with a new car, I should read up on my Linux OS, so I know whether I've got a Toyota or a Tesla, a gnome or a cinnamon. (I had no idea there was a difference.) Point taken. But as this thread was one of the first three search results that came up (even though it is 9 years old), I felt that my experience with the cinnamon panel might be useful to someone unfamiliar with the particulars, like myself. That is my hope anyway. I suppose, to take advantage of the full potential usefulness of my post, I should include other likely search terms like 'system tray', 'menu panel', 'menu bar', etc. Perhaps someone, in the next 9 years, will find my out-of-place advice useful. Although it may be best for me to start a new thread on the topic so that future searchers won't find themselves being advised by a 9-year old thread.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback.

@all

Just to make toddly's point, I installed Linuxmint 20 2 days ago and have messed up my panels. I did a quick internet search and this thread was at the top of the list, I click it and found his resolution which worked perfect for me.

Internet searches do not care one bit where the results are within the form, only that the search term(s) are located.

I DO understand a forum admin wanting to keep a tidy forum however, if a forum admin does not want new posts in old threads they can lock the old threads. Simple.

Cheers all.

Thanks for the quick fix toddly!!

toddly's Cinnamon solution to an old Gnome 2 problem looks like something that would have been easier found looking in your own system settings, not searching the web for suitable YT videos.

LOL

Who said anything about watching you tube videos? Did I? I believe what I said was I did an internet search.

I think the ONLY YouTube video about Unix/Linux I have ever watched as a tutorial on YouTube came from Chris Titus and it was about PFsense AND if you watched more YouTube videos you'd realize there is some REAL educational stuff up there and NOT just about computers. I managed, as a non-mechanic, to successfully replace my front control arms on my Mazda 3 by watching "YT videos". Which saved me about $600.00.

AND, his solution worked for me. Isn't that what posting solutions on the web is all about? Someone else may need it sometime in the future.

When I started to learn Linux there was very little information on the internet about Linux, mailing lists and man files is what there was. You Tube is a MUCH better platform than that.

Anyways, each to their own.

can't see any mention of Youtube in this thread

Maybe it's just me but i can't see where Toddly posted anything about a YouTube video. Mind you am extremely tired right now and have probably missed it in my scanning of the thread.

Just to be clear, I am not angry or even upset if anyone assumed I watched a YouTube video. If I did I would say so. I also don't care one bit about what people think about where I get my information. I draw from multiple sources starting with documentation and moving onto internet search's for various help forums such as Linux Questions. Although I am not very active here I have used this forum extensively since I joined and it is absolutely great and as a guy who hardly logs in ever and stays away from the "politics" of the site, I believe I enjoy it much more than some others might.

I wasn't always like that though, 20 years ago it wouldn't be wrong if someone described me as an "insecure in my knowledge ranter" - lol, I am still embarrassed about the way I acted on some forums.

Cheers all and Peace:-)
