Ubuntu :: Lost BOTH Panels / Command Line Instructions To Get Them Back?
Mar 26, 2009
I tried a program called BarPanel, which replaces the Gnome Panels. The installation instructions told me to download the program installer (the program installs automatically for Debian/Ubuntu users). Then I had to go to System > Preferences > Sessions to remove the gnome-panel entry and add the BarPanel one. So far so good. On re-starting, the new panels were installed to my desk top in bright green! The problem was that a lot of the icons don't work. The action menu does nothing and there is no entry for Sessions in the System menu, so I can't go back and undo. I have re-installed gnome-panel under Synaptic, without any success. I un-installed BarPanel, so I now don't have any panels at all now! One good thing is that I have Cairo-dock on my desktop, so I have access to several programs, including the terminal.
Can someone out there give me the command line instructions to get the gnome panels back.
I had some trouble before getting to install Webmin on my nas from the command line in Ubuntu Server So I wanted to temporary install a gui and used kde. Downloaded it via the browser.Now I got webmin running and tried to remove KDE again. Some things were removed but the inlog screen is still there, and now it looks more like a gnome interface when I logged on.How can I remove the GUI completely again?
At the Command Line Prompt I am able to start some Applications (such as openoffice.org or evolution) and the command line prompt re-appears after program is launched and I can continue working in that Terminal. However, other Applications, such as Totem or Blackboard will launch from the Terminal but the Prompt does not re-appear. Where Totem is concerned I get a message stating "sha module is deprecated use hashlib module instead". Where Blackboard is concerned the command line does not reappear. I have to use Ctrl + C to get the command line back but this closes the application as well! Or, I have to open a new Terminal. why some applications will start from the command line and others do not? How do you get the prompt back (other than q or Ctrl + c) thanks to all and kindest regards ( I am using Ubuntu 9.04)
I'm have much computer experience but am new to Ubuntu. I typed in sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop and it tells me it's already installed. Good. So it should work. I type sudo/etc/init.d/gdm start and the screen goes blank for 8 seconds three times in a row and then back to the command line. I have also tried gdm start without the path before and it says GDM already running. Aborting!
i'm an EEE PC user planning an imminent move to Ubuntu Lucid/ Maverick & Debian Sid . . i've put some work into my existing Ubuntu install based on 9.10 karmic nbr2 and am very happy with the results - full credit and thanks to allscreenshots of my work in progress ati'm therefore hoping to be able to upgrade my machine rather than do a fresh install, tho i have by now got .iso's of my present install and backups( dumps ) of gconf.managed to trash my panels a few days back and ended up rebuilding themas gconf --loadand restoring my /.gconf had failed to do the trick of restoring.
I'm on my other computer right now because I stupidly deleted the panels (taskbar).I tried to bring them back, but it leaves a blank space now.Also, I tried going on the internet but it said it's not connected.Clicking the Network Center in the Settings option doesn't respond either.IT: Also, this panel is supposedly from the Xfce. Whenever I try to add something like right click on it, it doesn't respond.
I have a weird problem that after increasing the screen resolution from 1024x786 (4:3) to 1280x900 something (also 4:3) that both top and bottom panels have disappeared. I am not familiar with the keyboard shortcuts to much but managed to get a terminal running so I should be able to do some command line stuff but as I am not too familiar where to edit perhaps someone can give me some pointers.
I guess first step is to restore the resolution to the original. Anyone any ideas?
I have removed some items from the panel accidentally . Now I want to get those items back , but the problem is , when I press right click on the panel and choose (Add To Panel) , those items aren't existed . Those Items blong to some things that I cannot even make an application launcher of , such as : (The Item Of Quick Language Changing) to switch between languages easily and smothly , (The Item Of Controling The Volume) to increase and Decrease the volume , and (The Item Of Managing The Network Access) to connect/disconnect to a network . And There are some other items.
All my panels and desktop and wallpaper disappeared. I don't know how to get them back without restarting KDE4. I have too many things open. I can't right click the desktop > appearance settings and I don't know what to input into alt+F2 to get that system settings menu. Any ideas?
i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.
Alright so I lost a sd card that I had uploaded to my comp before it crashed but I wiped the card before I lost it and I want back what was on it..I have ran testdisk and photorec and it has only brought me back 5 or so pics, but when I search the card in deleted files through either program it lets me see the file names, and when I try to save it the computer doesn't read the jpeg file when I go to open the recovered file.

I am happy with ubuntu it's cool, but I want to go back to windows. I lost my windows cd. So I made a blank disc with an iso file. But the problem is. When I try to keep it inside my computer and restart it won't load. I think grub has something to do with this.
I have a harddisk which is partiotioned in C & D. I've installed WIN XP on C and WIN 7 on D. Then I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on D beside WIN 7. Now I can't access to WIN 7 and also to drive D in XIN XP and in Ubuntu. What can I do to get back WIN 7 and drive D ?
Login in problems: I was trying to fix the brightness on my toshiba T130 Satellite laptop and found these instruction [Note: I did not try XRANDR option] If backlight control doesn't work with the 'XRANDR' option above, use this code...
Safe the file, run 'sudo update-grub' and reboot.
Credits: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...id/+bug/392948[/INDENT]http://www.linlap.com/wiki/toshiba+satellite+t130 However after running these instructions and rebooting my laptop I lost the GUI, and do not know how to get it back. If it helps the loader screen with the 4 dots has gone slightly skewed, and I've downloaded the most recent update changes.
I can get GUI through recovery mode and running it in failsafex, but I don't think this is a good solution.
I'm using Windows 7 and Ubuntu in two differents partitions in my hard drive. I was on Windows 7 and decided to reboot. When the grub screen should have appeared, instead the computer rebooted itself. It continues to do so. I put Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD and it keeps "loading" forever, but doesn't hang. In the console, it said something like "input/output" error. I tried with my Win 7 DVD and it was the same: it doesn't reach the part where it shows the menu with all the installation options.
I tried with Gparted and it loaded fine. It showed all my partitions, but there wasn't (I think) more that I could have done with it. I tried then user Super Grub Boot. I finally could enter Ubuntu. Everything is fine except that it doesn't show my Window partition. It's like it doesn't exist anymore, so I can't backup my files. Now, I haven't tried loading Win 7 from Super Grub Boot (I'm going to do it just as soon as I post this), but this is pretty weird. Anyone have any idea what is going on and what can I do to this this?
I had everything backed up so it is no great disaster, but drop box lost a lot of my files. Some of the folders with missing files now have thumbs.db in them, but when you go to the dropbox site, you don't even see that.
I had thought about using dropbox as my main backup solution. That would be a big mistake.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a usb stick and have been running it from there. I was messing around with the "Login Screen" utility and changed the session choice to "User defined session" (or something similar). I thought this would allow me to pick the session to use (Unity, Gnome) but that was wrong. So right now, when I login, I have a blank screen with no menu bars. If someone could give me the commandline command to run the "Login Screen", I should be able to switch it back.
I was running a patch of my wifi connection and now i have NO wifi at all. I am totally lost right now. i have been running throught all the threads but nothing is really working. Is there a way do a full system restore (like windows) that will undo all my mistakes? my wifi has always worked until i screwed something up!
I am running ubuntu 9.1 on a Dell Dimension 2400. After installing ubuntu on the pc, it was automatically recognizing my router and connecting to the internet fine via ethernet. Then, my roommate unplugged the router and it won't recognize it. I can't access my router settings, and ubuntu is recognizing it as "inactive" but every other computer in the apartment runs fine. My PC uses a broadcom ethernet controller, and my router is a Linksys wireless N.
