Top Tool Bar [SOLVED]

Δημοσίευση από margaret » 17 Ιαν 2011, 20:22

This sytem is going to kill me! Now the top toolbar (or whatever it's called) the one which has close down, wireless, battery indication etc. has disappeared. How do I get it back???

Does anyone know?

Hi Margaret!

1) alt+f2 : when the dialog comes up: execute gnome-terminal
2) now that you have the nice terminal open, execute:
     

Κώδικας: Επιλογή όλων

 gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel & pkill gnome-panel
that should do it. ;)

Thanks a lot but unfortunately I had already tried that. I found it on the Ubuntu Forum. I just tried it again. I got [1] 2054 in the terminal. Nothing works. I think I'm going for either Ubuntu 8.04 or Pupee. This 10.04 NBR is nothing but trouble.

I think you can select regular gnome from the login screen.

Maybe that's kind of a solution.

It only gives me a choice of Ubuntu NBR, Ubuntu NBR 2 and xterm. None of them make the top panel appear.

OK I downloaded 8.04 NBR with Unetbootin and can run it live but I can't connect to wireless. Any ideas?

Probably is the same problem you already had with 10.10 that was installed in your computer. Can you check which kernel version you've got in live (uname -r) ? Check if it is disabled in the BIOS also.

Well, I had 8.04 before 'upgraded' to 10.04 and the wireless always worked fine. I've checked in the BIOS and wireless is on. Right now it's working on 10.04. If I could get the top panel back and free some space, I think 10.04 would be OK, but if not, I need to change the OS. I only really need wireless internet and Open Office to work on this netbook so all the other stuff can go.

Margaret,
it all depends on the kernel version you have and the module responsible for wireless. You can change the applications remove anything, as long as you keep the kernel for which the module was compiled and load that module in the kernel, then wireless should be fine.

My point is that no matter your OS version, check the kernel's version (uname -r), make sure that you upgrade or downgrade to the proper kernel version and use David's module. The proper kernel version is the one that was used by David to build your wireless module.

Right. Can you clarify, please... does this mean that the kernel doesn't change with the OS you are using? So, I should find out which kernel the live 8.04 is using and it must be the same as the kernel that the wireless module compiled by David was for?

The kernel version does change with a release, if you do updates sometimes it will update the kernel to a newer version, that is a higher number.
I think your are using the mainline kernel now which has the correct drivers.

Yes, because wireless works fine now. I'm trying to make some extra space - got about 96MB now up from 56MB - and someoone on the eee forum suggested getting rid of all extra language packs using localepurge... is this a viable option?
I'm really interested in getting my top panel back and maybe lack of space is blocking its return??

is it gnome-panel?

what happens when you execute

Κώδικας: Επιλογή όλων

gnome-panel
in terminal?

Does it say that 1 is already running?

Do you have another panel, say at the bottom?

Oh twin, you are a genius!  In terminal it said 'gnome-panel not installed. Do you want to install it' so I said yes, installed, rebooted, and HERE IT IS :) It's back! The only thing missing is the closedown/suspend etc. but I can do that from the on/off switch.

Thanks a lot! Free drinks for everyone!!

Now everyone - I'm down to 110MB free space and constant warnings - can I do this localepurge thing without destroying something? Is there anything else I can remove. I've done apt-get clean (seems to do nothing) apt-get auto-clean, apt-get auto-remove, and removed a few programs like cheese and f-spot. What else?
