Are you saying that your Applications menu is missing? If so, are the Places and System menus also missing?

What is the significance of the Firefox, Ubuntu One, and Tomboy? Are you able to start those applications because you have shortcuts to them on your panel?

How long ago was the update that appears to have triggered this?

Hi Eliah,
The system menu and places is missing all other shortcuts works ( able to start). I make the update with an terminal. The last update was 2 min ago .

I got this problem at 23.02.2011 . I install the image from 23.02. Then i made the update kernel 2.6.38-5 etc.. After a reboot my network doesnt work... So i make the config manual in the network/interfaces , but the update-manager crash. So i make it with the terminal. After that i activate the 3D driver for Nvidia and reboot the system.

If it starts again i only have this BIG Buttons on the left pannel menu and it was flashing.
 After some updates and reboots it isn't flashing now.

The most likely direct cause of this problem is the Menu Bar panel applet being removed from your top panel. Sometimes users accidentally remove this. However, it is possible that a bug could cause this problem. It is also possible (though unlikely) that your missing menus might not be due to removal of the Menu Bar applet, but may instead have some other direct cause.

To restore your menus, right-click on the very left side of your top panel, click "Add to Panel...", find and select Menu Bar, and click Add. Successfully performing this operating will fix the immediate problem and also confirm that the menus are missing due to removal of that applet from the top panel.

"So i make the config manual in the network/interfaces , but the update-manager crash."

Did the manual network configuration succeed? Do you know at what point in the updating process the Update Manager crashed (for example, did it crash when you first launched it, or as it was checking for updates, or when you told it to install updates, or while it was in the process of installing updates)? Did you report that crash as a bug? If so, please specify the bug.

"If it starts again i only have this BIG Buttons on the left pannel menu and it was flashing."

I don't understand what you mean by this. What is the "left panel menu"? Can you describe the buttons?

Hi Eliah,

i can't add something to to Panel, only remove something. I made a screenshoot from my problem and add it as attachment.

Yes the connection works after my manual config.

Hi,
The problem is the gnome-panel doesn't start, Only the Unity launcher. Sometimes the Unity launcher flash.

I can only add some app to the launcher if i start the gnome-panel with the terminal and start an app over the gnome-panel. If the an app is running, i can look the app icon with a rightclick on it and choose "keep in Launcher"

Launchpad Answers doesn't support attaching files. Normally I would ask you to post the screenshot somewhere like http://postimage.org. However, since you have opened a bug report also, you can attach the screenshots to the bug report. Please attach /var/log/dpkg.log to the bug report as well, as the problem started to occur after an update (if I understand you correctly), and this file provides information about what was updated recently, and when. Please also take this opportunity to provide all the details you have provided here, in the bug report. (Don't copy and paste from here, or at least don't *just* copy and paste...but instead rewrite it coherently so that the Ubuntu developers tending to your bug report can understand what's going on.) You should also change the package that the bug report indicates is affected from update-manager to ubiquity.

I'm sorry, I meant to say that you should change the package that the bug report indicates from update-manager to *unity*.

Can you help with this problem?
