How to restore default indicator applets

Asked by Christopher

I had to move a panel to the left on my netbook, and couldn't isolate the 'Properties' to restore it to the top. In the end, I had removed just about everything from the panel before I could find a spot where I could right click and reset the position.

How do I restore the applets I removed; i.e Sound, network etc.?

To see nettool and indicator-sound you need notification area and indicator applet.
Right click on empty space of panel -> add to panel and search the list.

In case to unset panel to default via CLI:
gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel

or restart panel via CLI:
pkill gnome-panel

Yes - I knew there was something I forgot to do today. I did just that last night and my icons are restored.

The Unity panel consumes too many resources on my puny netbook, so I use the classic Gnome instead.

I hope there are no plans to remove the option of using the classic desktop anytime soon.

No worry, there is no change to it that allows a user to choose preferred desktop environment via installation of 'meta package'.

... and removing it.

... unchecking the Unity plugin in CCSM will stop unity from running

@cableguy 54 - do you have PulseAudio Volume Control installed? I used to have - and occasionally still do have problems with my Logitech USB AudioHub, and the PulseAudio tools usually solve them.
