I can't understand what you're talking about. Session of what? Panels of what? Which .tar.tgz, from where? Care to provide us with a few details?

You should give us the following, at least.
  • What you have
    Tell us your distribution, desktop, hardware, configuration, changes you've made recently... anything about your setup that could be relevant.
  • What you want
    Detail exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Be specific. Explain your problem in detail and what you expect from a solution. Start from the beginning.
  • What you did
    What have you tried already? What did you do, in detail? What are the exact commands you used? Where did you get the information explaining the things you tried?
  • What you got
    What are the results of the things you tried? What error messages did you get? What other effects or outputs were there?
In short, give us details about everything. Don't just assume we know what you are talking about. We aren't psychic, after all! (Well, most of us, anyway. )

Question

good day,, sorry for not giving too much details about my subject but anyway,,thanks.!! i already resolved this problem and its done.
Here's the details: i have a newly installed ubuntu linux 10.04 32bit (lucid lynx). After installation by default there are two panels appeared from top and one at the bottom. just right click onto it ,there are few options listed below.

add to panel
properties
delete this panel
new panel
help

again if you click the " add to panel " it will appear a new window where you can find an item to be add, i scroll down and i chose " window list " twice then that was the last modification i made. When I open the firefox browser and minimize it, i see it at the top and one at the bottom panel. I tried to find a way how can i delete or remove this newly added item which is the "window list" ,i did the same procedure right clicking on every item i see, and there it goes at the edge of each item there is a " remove from panel " option and it's gone...,, i love linux now...!!

So, you managed to figure it out yourself? That's good. Please mark the thread as solved.

While I don't personally know all that much about Gnome (the Ubuntu desktop environment), what you appear to be talking about are the panel widgets/applets/objects, one of which is an access list of all open windows. And as you discovered, it's just as easy to remove them as it is to add them.

Here's a documentation page for the gnome desktop. Section 4 details how to use the panel and it's objects.
