somehow I got rid of the mail icon on the Gnome panel which I used to check my Evolution Mail and Pidgin on the fly without going to Applications->Internet-> first. How can I retrieve this icon? I can't seem to find it.

I lost the pictures and music icons on the places menu. When I browse the folders from nautilus I see the icons, but when I click on the places menu I see the regular folder icon and not the special pictures icon or music icon
Someone on the forums had me uninstall pulseaudio to get pSX working, and now I don't have a volume control icon on the panel and when choosing to add stuff to the panel it isn't available.I re-installed pulseaudio through the package manager, but I have a feeling it didn't install everything that uninstalled with it.
Kwallet is off. Then I install a wireless device under WPA. Wired icon starts to change to wireless icon, but does not and goes back to wired icon. Hovering pointer over wired icon shows wired device installed as well as wireless device. How do I keep the wireless icon in place after installing WPA to wireless device?
I somehow accidently deleted the 'Network Icon' from the panel of Ubuntu 10.04. Now Iam unable to find a way to recover that back!?'Add to Panel' do not shows up Network icon & neither the 'Volume Button'. walk me through the method to get both back within the panel.
After a recent upgrade I have lost the top right icon in the top panel - so I cannot Set Status, Lock Screen, Guest Session, Switch User ..... Restart, Shutdown. I have right clicked on the top panel and installed the Shutdown icon so I can shutdown but I have lost all the other functions including the 60secs countdown. Is there any way I can get the standard top right icon in the top panel?
I am using the fully updated version of Ubuntu 10.4. The volume icon is missing from the top panel and adding the "notification area" does not do anything - I can double-click the icon, or drag it over, and nothing appears in the panel. Adding the "Indicator Applet" also has the same result. I do not know what applet to add, nor do I know why the volume icon is missing. The power icon, the network icon, the mail icon, and the rest of the applets are all there - only the volume icon is missing.
Also, when I press "fn + pg up or pg dn," it would usually change the volume and display a notification showing that the volume changed. This does not happen anymore: no notification, no sound change. I can still hear audio, but can not change the level.
My laptop(ubuntu 10.04) works great before ( with sounds )but after reboot,it has absolutely no sound.There is no sound icon on the top-right panel.When I try System > Preference > Sound, it show " waiting for sound system to response".
earlier today I was at my computer, and the update manager popped up. I installed the updates, and closed the manager. Now I have this pesky icon on my panel in the notification area that I simply cannot get rid of.It's a link to the update manager. How can I remove it?
I've upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04, and now I'm experiencing some problems with the displaying of panels and icons that I'm hoping someone can help me to fix.
Situation: Running 11.04 in latest virtualbox (4.06, with guest additions installed) on a macbook pro running snow leopard (10.6.7). I'm in gnome classic (no effects) because I'm not yet used to gnome 3 and compiz doesn't run all that well for me in this virtualization set-up. But the problem, described below, is consistent from gnome 3 to classic (with effects) to classic (without effects).
Problem: When I first log in after a reboot, everything looks great in the default settings (ambiance theme, I think), but after ~ 15 seconds, the panels and icons revert to an odd looking theme that I don't particularly care for. And trying to change the settings in the "Appearance" preferences is of no help, i.e., I can change the themes, but the panels and icons remain in a stock, old-school gnome-ish theme.
I have a docs partition with my music on it. I replaced the Music folder in the system's home folder with a symlink pointing to the music folder on the docs partition, but the special music icon has now disappeared (it just looks like a regular folder).
some reason I lost my default icon sizes in Nautilus. This only appears to affect any graphic files like .jpg, .png, etc. that I keep in my "Pictures" folder. I also have this issue with video files that I keep in my "Video" folder.Currently I am running Ubuntu Natty and using the Ambiance theme that is customized with Faenznt icons. Nautilus is customized with Nautilus Elementary. Changing themes has no effect. The folders all appear normal and other icon file types appear normal, it's just my graphic d video files that are appearing small.Running dconf editor shows my icon setting is set to normal. I am enclosing a pic so you can see the folders display at a normal size, but the graphic files do not.
