I use 10.04 regularly and I dual-booted my laptop with 10.04 and Windows 7 already.
I made a mistake in deleting my entire top and bottom panel on 10.04. So I am trying to get it back.
When I search through forums, it asks me to go to terminal and use some commands to get it back. But the problem is, I am not able to access my terminal through Alt+F2.
When I press F2, my Wi-Fi goes off because it is the Wi-Fi button on my Dell laptop and my Internet is off. It doesn't bring me a terminal. How should I get to a terminal to do any further action?
@obsessive foss Thank you..That helped CTRl+Alt+T. I just pressed some commands to get back my ubuntu top panel. I used the commands
gconftool-2 --shutdown rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel pkill gnome-panel
But the cursory look at commands suggests i am shutting down gconftool and then killing process gnome panel too. How am i able to get back my top panel then..what are these commands actually doing??
