Restore Ubuntu Jaunty Panel
My friend played with the panels (its position, size, etc) it turned out to cause a tragedy. He nearly couldn’t do anything with the freshly installed, keyboard-shortcut-less Ubuntu. After searching the web, here’s the fix:
1. make a new folder in desktop, to open the nautilus file browser.
2. run gnome-terminal in /bin/ (if not mistaken)
3. Type in
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
sudo debconf gnome-panel
Hope it works for you.
