Gnome Panel is missing (SOLVED)

Postby greenducky on Mon Mar 24, 2008 4:59 am

Hello all,
so i was recently looking for some software to sync my Sony Ericsson W580i cell phone with mozilla Thunderbird, and i came across a
app that was called Kitchensync, so i went to synaptic and i installed it. when synaptic was finished i closed it. but right after that i could
no longer click on the mint menu, or anything for that matter, i guess stuff kind of froze, no biggie i thought. so pressed ctrl alt backspace and
restarted X. when i logged back in the top panel was gone. i never had a bottom panel just avant window navigator. AVN showed up fine. and compiz
started fine and my network seems to work fine and all desktop icons seems to work, i can open a terminal.

But i donot know how to get the gnome panel back i need my menus and i am really annoyed
I did go back into synaptic and removed Kitchensync and then restarted x and its no longer there.

when i log out and change the session to safe gnome and log in, it all works fine the panels are there.

so i am pretty confused and help would be much appreciated. thanks mint users.
This picture is my desktop before with the gnome panel.

Maybe if you type "gnome-panel" in terminal?
