problem with bars (used to steer ubuntu)

Asked by ed on 2011-09-28

I am using 11.04 with the traditional bars (not the new steering system)

problem: klicking around vanished the application, the files and yhe system item in the main bar (where there is also the shut down button)

question: how can I reinstall the original configuration of the bar?

alternative: how can I pass again to the new desktop steering system (the apple like)

thanks

For have back the old configuration bars:
try to do this:
1. Login into Ubuntu
2. Open a terminal by hitting CTRL + ALT + T
3. Insert and run this command:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

4. Restart, this should work.

If when you hit CTRL + ALT + T and nothing happen, do this:
1. At login screen select Recovery Console at bottom:

2. Open a terminal by hitting CTRL + ALT + T
3. Insert and run this command:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

4. Restart, this should work.

For use the new interface, at login screen select 'Ubuntu', then login.
