Just re-create the panel and add what you want to it.
I'm guessing that the files have been deleted as the panel was deleted.

Hi,

Run the below command -

Code: Select all

rm -rfv $HOME/.gconf/apps/panel
This will delete the custom settings and enable GNOME to generate default settings the next time you log in.

If it is urgent, then you could start by removing all your Gnome config. Then, after restarting your desktop you will have a default desktop again, with a default single panel.

  • Login to the account.
  • Open a terminal.
  • ls -a
  • rm -r .gconf
  • ls -a
  • Close the terminal.
  • Logout from the account.
  • Login to the account.
Basically it has been suggested that you try deleting your existing Gnome configuration, which is held under the hidden directory ~/.gconf. The above list will achieve the task.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
I did it exactly what you suggested but still there is no luck, no bottom menu regenerated.

I think gnome process has been changed in CentOS 6.7- with latest update.

When you logged-in and deleted ~/.gconf, were you logged into a desktop session?

I suspect that you need to log out of your desktop, log in on the command line (hit <ctrl>-<alt>-F2 to get a terminal login prompt). Delete the ~/.gconf directory, then start your desktop.
