Using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, installed LXDE for the heck of it. Used it for a bit, then logged out and logged in. Now the taskbar isn't there, and there's a solid gray bar at the top of the screen (width roughly the same as that of the taskbar). What should I do?

Does anything happen after right clicking on the bar? –  Joshua Kersey Dec 28 '12 at 19:52

The solid gray bar is your task bar. Right click it and click 'Panel Settings'. You'll have to manually add everything you had on it.

EDIT: The default LXDE panel file is stored at /usr/share/lxpanel/profile/LXDE/panels Copy this to ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels to restore the default configuration.

that sounds tedious, do you know a faster way? there must be some default setting stored somewhere, no? –  DrSAR Feb 25 '13 at 5:37
