On Ubuntu 13.10, after installing VirtualBox Guest Additions, my taskbar and panel icons disappeared and do not come back after a restart.


Opening a terminal and running the following commands will restart the panel:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel
