    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.

    Well I have posted some pictures in my 'blog'
    (http://tinyurl.com/8aypv5). You can see the message asking for default
    panel here.

    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)
