First off, this is my first foray into the world of Linux and I'm liking it so far. I followed this guide (which was very good) and got Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Xfce to work very well.
However I've run into a bit of an annoying issue. I've somehow lost the taskbar that was at the top of the screen and the icons at the bottom. I don't really know what the correct names of those are but I'd very much like to get them back.
I don't know what I did to lose them, but I lost them upon the first restart I did to see if I could get back into Ubuntu, which I was able to. Any help is much appreciated.
