Restore Ubuntu Panels Back To Their Default Settings

As an Ubuntu user, there comes a time (or there will come a time) when you are playing around with Ubuntu/Gnome, trying different themes, different engines, different window managers, etc, and all of a sudden you run into a problem where the Panels go awry. However there is a fix for this: 


Open the Terminal. 
Once the Terminal window opens, enter the following command at the prompt:
gconftool - -recursive-unset /apps/panel 
(Remember: There should be no spaces between the two dashes before shutdown.)
Then enter the next command:
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
And enter one more command:
pkill gnome-panel


Both top and bottom panels will appear (if missing) with their default settings.
Hope this helps.
