the bar in which i use to get on the internt is gone

Asked by Tim Rhodes on 2013-06-03

I have a Linux tower computer, and there is a bar on the top of my start screen that has time and date, a wired connection icon, my applications that I use like LibreOffice, and a firefox icon that I use to log on to the internet. That is all missing now, this bar also contains the turn off, restart, and switch user button as well. I would like to know how to get this bar back. I have tried to restart the computer manually, I have hit the power button on the computer itself, and I have unplugged it and nothing I have tried has worked.

If you press CTRL+ALT+T and run:

lsb_release -a

What is output?

Thanks

It does not recognize command, it says command not found.

Make sure you get the space in the right place. If you copy and paste the code it's easier

It still says no 'run' command found. When I try it without the -a, it says no lsb command found.

Ok, try:

cat /etc/issue

What is the output please?

This says no such file or directory.

you are putting the space between the word 'cat' and the rest, right?

Can you post the full terminal text, including the command you run.

user@user-desktop:~$ run: cat / etc / issue
No command 'run:' found, did you mean:
 Command 'runq' from package 'exim4-daemon-heavy' (main)
 Command 'runq' from package 'sendmail-bin' (universe)
 Command 'runq' from package 'exim4-daemon-light' (main)
run:: command not found
user@user-desktop:~$ cat / etc / issue
cat: /: Is a directory
cat: etc: No such file or directory

user@user-desktop:~$

You dont need to add the 'run:' bit. The words I typed are the commands. Why are you adding 'run:' to everything?

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04
Codename: natty
user@user-desktop:~$ run:

I am just trying to show you the different ways I was trying to get this thing to work. I was putting 'run' on the lines because the others were not working and I figured how could it hurt.

Natty is EOL and no longer supported in any way. I recommend you wipe the install out and reinstall using Precise Ubuntu 12.04). It is LTS and supported til April 2017.

Okay, sounds like I really have no other choice. I thank you for you time and effort sir.

Can you help with this problem?
