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

gconftool-2 –shutdown

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel

pkill gnome-panel

sudo debconf gnome-panel

Hope it works for you.
