This question already has an answer here:
yesterday I did a fresh install with ubuntu 17.10.
Then I did some playing around with themes and extensions. Then I did a reboot and after the reboot the gnome-bar became very ugly.
(light transparency of the bar, calendar in center)
But instead it looks like this:
(No transparency, calendar at the right side, theme doesn't seem to apply)
How do I get back the nice gnome panel from the first screenshot?
After the reboot, that broke the bar, also a lot of extensions appeared. I couldn't remove them via extensions.gnome.org/local/, so I removed them via
rm -r. For some reason those unwanted extensions come back, when I do
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-shell-extensions. I'd like to get rid of them permanently, but for now I'm fine.
