Desktop menu bar lost (in Ubuntu Dapper)

Asked by impert on 2007-04-04

I had just downloaded Wine and dragged the icon up to the menu bar at the top of the screen. A series of icons appeared covering the whole bar. Right clicked on one, clicked on 'remove' in the dialogue box, confirmed it in the next dialogue box (warning etc) and lost thewhole menu bar, applications, system places, and off button. Can't get into terminal as admin, and not sure where to find the default settings if I could. Ubuntu Dapper/AMD64/newb. Thanks for any help.

Simple when you know how, isn't it! I can't have been functioning too well last night. Thanks a lot, Ordago

I accidentally deleted my menus item as well but not the whole panel. To get them right click and go to Add to Panel. Next scroll down to the Utilities section and drag the Menu Bar item onto the panel.

I am using Feisty Fawn.
