Missing panel in Ubuntu Mate?

So something went wrong and your panel does no longer appear even after the restart. Here is what you can do after you pulled all the hair.

  • Open your terminal window by clicking the desktop and choosing Open in Terminal
  • Type
    mate-panel --reset

    and press Enter

That should do it, But what if it doesn’t?

  • Open terminal again and type
    mate-control-center

    and press Enter

  • Go to Look And Feel tab on the left and chose Tweak on the right
  • Find where panel settings reside and chose any look of panel that you like and tweak some settings

It has not solved too much for me because the bottom panels were not showing no matter what, but at least I could work and search for the further fixes.
