When I minimize folders and mozilla, it is not visible in the panel. I do not where it is stored.

It looks like you have removed the Window List Applet:

  • If the panel is still there, right click on it and select Add to Panel, then choose Window List and click add.

  • If the panel is gone completely, click the upper one and select New Panel first.

The default widgets on the bottom panel are, in order: Show Desktop, Window List, Workspace Switcher and Rubbish Bin.

@nitzsi try running rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel again and log out and back in, see what that does. Please add a screen shot of your desktop to your question, if this doesn't solve your problem –  Stefano Palazzo Dec 15 '10 at 18:47
