Thread: PANEL disappeared, help needed

    Default PANEL disappeared, help needed

    I have the panel (taskbar) positioned on top. I then turned on "auto hide" in the panel properties (Gnome) to maximize the screen.

    The panel surely disappeared. The problem is that I cannot get it back no matter how much I hoover or click with the mouse - it is gone!...

    So how do I get it back??? I am rather new to Linux, but I figure that there should be a config file somewhere where I can set "auto hide" to false or something like this...

    If there is a simpler way to get the panel back - please let me know, it would be much appreciated!

    Problem solved. Its a bit weird, because I didn't find a top_panel. I did however find the /apps/panel/toplevels/bottom_panel_screen0

    where I set the autohide to off. And that made it...


    Thanks alot guys! That made my day!

    No, it's not weird. I am the one being weird. That's the name I gave to that panel. I didn't have that in mind, sorry. bottom_panel_screen0 is what most people have, as it is the default.
