Day before yesterday when booted my PC showed a dialogue box telling some applet is missing and it had two buttons 'dont delete' and 'delete', not sure what to do I clicked the close(X) button on the top left of the dialogue box.

Since then running programs are not showing in the bottom taskbar. All other things are working fine.

I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. if you need any other info let me know. I use Gnome (3.4.1) installed and I prefer it over the unity interface.

    As far as I know, Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't have any bottom taskbar. – Radu Rădeanu Oct 9 '13 at 18:18

Found the solution :

It required me to alt+ right_click on the taskbar and click ¨add to panel¨ and adding window list to the panel

sorry for bothering you all and thanks for taking time and answering the post

Im pretty sure there is no bottom taskbar in Ubuntu...

I think you are referring to a "docking app", something like plank or docky. If thats the issue, then your docking app malfunctioned, and

you need to uninstall it and reinstall it

for your running apps to appear at the bottom again

    Look at the question after the revisions. The OP is actually running Gnome Fallback which has a bottom panel ("taskbar") for running applications. – Seth Oct 9 '13 at 20:24
