Thread: How To Restore Default Panel?

    Default How To Restore Default Panel?

    at the bottom of the screen is the question. I was experimenting with the desktop and deleted it. Now I'm just looking at an empty desktop to which I can add widgets, but I sure would like to have the panel back with the clock, menu, task manager, etc.

    Also, anytime I add a new panel to the desktop it places it at the top of the screen. Can this be moved from this location to another?

    Easiest way to fix this is delete or rename the .kde4 it's a hidden folder in /home

    That procedure didn't work for me. Still no panel at the bottom. I had created another one with the widgets I want, but it's at the top and is still there..... only colored gray now instead of black. It would be fine if I could move it to the bottom.

    Well I had faced the same situation. I tried to add a new panel and KDE asked me if it was the default panel that I wanted to add or a generic one. Check if this works.

    On a clean desktop when I right-click the menu only presents an "Add Panel" option. When I select it a panel is immediately added to the top of the page. I don't see an option presented for choosing what kind of panel to create. Can you tell me exactly what sequence you are going through to find this option? Thanks.

    well when there is no panel at all, then if I add a panel it asks me if I want to add the default panel. Hope it clarifies, else I shall write more tomorrow morning.

    If you would please. What I see when right clicking on the empty desktop is a menu which presents the selection choices:
    Run Command
    Add Widgets
    Add Panel
    Desktop Settings
    Lock Widgets
    ---------------
    Lock Screen
    Leave

    When choosing "Add Panel" immediately a new panel is placed at the top of the screen with no opportunity to choose what type of panel it should be.

    Rightclick the panel at the top, choose Panel settings, drag it to the bottom by pressing the Screen edge button (and holding it down ofc)

    Thanks, that does it.
    Sad to say, but that has been the reason I gave up on Kde4.xx in the past.
    Shoulda' known that it had happened to quite a few over the years.
