How to setup gnome-panel in ubuntu 8.04.1.

  • Yesterday I failed to  open the option window of gnome-panel after having deselected the "strentch the panel" (ie. maybe "expand the panel ") in the options.
  • Just now I found these two files:
  • ~/.gconf/apps/panel/toplevels/bottom_panel_screen0/background/%gconf.xml 778 09/17/2008 14:19 -a-- .


  • ~/.gconf/apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel_screen0/background/%gconf.xml 778 09/17/2008 14:19 -a-- .


  • <entry name="expand" mtime="1221697290" schema="/schemas/apps/panel/toplevels/expand" type="bool" value="true">


  • I changed value="false" to "true" and login again, PANEL expanded as default, but anyway I can't open the options windows of panel yet. The popup windows just includes "About panels", "Help" when the panel was right-clicked, there is not options in the popup window. How can I deal with this problem? Thank you.

Maybe I can delete the  folder /.gconf/apps/panel or copy other user's to here?

It's resoved last night.

I opened the register table with gconf-editor, and deselected /apps/panel/global/locked_down. Then reboot, now It's OK.Thank you.
