I was trying to install Force Quit and a couple of other applets on the top panel of Xubuntu.
Suddenly I had no more Xubuntu panel, but an empty panel. After some search I found the two legitimate panels located under two inactive panels, like those in the new Ubuntu 11.10 distribution. I was able to make the legitimate panels larger with panel preferences and therefore have the use of Xubuntu. Still the two dummy panels are under the legitimate panels. I would like to get rid of the two extra panels which only showed up as I was installing Force Quit and another couple of applets. I would appreciate any suggestions. I can re-install if necessary, but I have been doing this for the two years I have been learning Linux. Any time I couldn't solve a problem, I would re-install. Any help greatly appreciated.
