Yes, more information should have been provided. I believe I am running
Debian wheezy? When I boot up it says something about debian 6.xxx with
linux 2.xxx. I am running Gnome desktop. Whether its called a panel or
toolbar it is the 'panel' info at the top of the screen that has
'applications, places, system, date,time and any icons that are placed
there. I did a complete uninstall of Pan which deleted the icon on the
desktop. All it did was 'grey' out the icon in that panel. I tried to
'delete' it but deleted the whole 'panel'/toolbar or what ever one wants
to call it. Doing a restart or completely powering down and rebooting
did not restore it. Thanks to Ralf, I am able to bring up what normally
a 'click' on the panel would show so I am able to at least shut down. I
also found out how to get a new panel at the top. I managed to place the
date and time back but I don't know how to restore the
'applications/places/system' section so I can use that to do what ever
navigation I need to do. I am a 98% GUI user and seldom use the command


Glad you got it fixed! FYI /etc/debian_version 6.x.x is Squeeze (Stable). 7.0 is Wheezy which will become the new stable in the near

Have a Happy
