Lower menu bar at the bottom gone.

Asked by Michael Gonzalez on 2012-01-04

I somehow accidentally deleted my lower menu bar which allows me to switch from open/running tasks/programs. It also had a trash icon on the far right. How can I get the lower menu bar working again ?

I had a menu bar like on Microsoft's Windows which allows you to switch from active windows. I am still a novice to this OS. I am using Linux Unbuntu 10.04 LTS. I do not understand what you are asking for. PLS help. I can not minimize my active windows without losing them out of sight. Thanks.

 gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel

Will reset the panels to defaults for you, should help. You can then build up from there

Wow Thanks !!! How can I learn more on how to use the terminal ? I have not even so much tapped into the potential of this OS. Thanks a million !

Just use terminal and you'll learn it. There are sample commands for lots of things in guides online. There may also be snippets in the Ubuntu Manual.
