Installing gnome-panel from source

Hello, I downloaded the source code, made some changes I wanted and now i want to install it.

What should I do after compiling it?

I tried uninstalling gnome-panel from synaptic and then installing using "make install" but when i reboot the gnome-panel does not work.

Is your gnome-panel where it should be?
Run it from the command line - are there any error messages (also check logs in /var/log)?
Is it possible that your changes are buggy? You could try compiling a debug version, or inserting debug messages in the code that tell you whats going on & whether the code is doing what's expected.
I don't know how familiar you are with debugging - but its certainly an art. Good luck
