How do I reset my Unity configuration?

I messed around with the compiz setting to set up desktop cube when I first installed 11.04. Big mistake right? I have everything back to normal but my top left panel is gone and I have tried everything to get it back. Unity --reset usually hangs on me and nothing else I have seen in the forums works.

The Unity launcher?, is that what you referring to? –  Uri Herrera Jun 29 '11 at 3:41

You can reset the Compiz settings for unity with a terminal command: unity --reset

I have tried that a bunch of times. It always hangs and forces me to hard reboot. Also, doesn't fix anything. –  Randy Flagg Jun 29 '11 at 4:18
    
How about resetting all of the Compiz settings: gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1 && unity --reset –  monotasker Jun 29 '11 at 4:24
    
The reset does not work unless the plugin is actually enabled. –  red Jun 29 '11 at 9:19

Do you have the Unity plugin enabled in CCSM? Oh and when I tried the cube, it screwed up things for me as well. Try using the Desktop Wall instead.

Unity plugin is enabled. I tried both unity --reset and unity --reset-icons –  Randy Flagg Jun 29 '11 at 12:30
    
Neither of those reset commands worked for my problem earlier. Check the answer I left to the linked question if it helps you. –  red Jun 30 '11 at 10:42
