Ubuntu Panel is gone missing.


Hello,
I'm new to Ubuntu but already having a blast..but somehow I deleted my panel at the bottom of my desktop screen...I don't know what I did or how to undo it...Do you have any suggestions as to how I can get my panel back to the way it was when I first installed Ubuntu?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Jim

Delete the hidden directories under /home/<username>/
.gnome2
.gnome2_private
.gconf
.gconfd

then log out and back in again.
Obviously, replace <username> with your user name.

I would recommend the same! It's easier than to delete multiple (hidden, btw) files. Also, you will understand how to configure your panels.

You make the assumption that there is a top panel. The method I described returns the panels to their original state.
