How to restore the gnome panels to their default state after you mucked them up

Not that you would ever muck them up, but just in case:

Get a terminal somehow (alt+F2 if you must). Type this in:

gconftool-2 –shutdown

or

gconftool –recursive-unset /apps/panel

(or, both if you like)

Then,

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel

pkill gnome-panel

that sounds like a lot of violence and killing and stuff, but it should work. Both of your panels will reappear like magic. If not, go here and complain because this is where I learned it!
