KDE4 panel disappeared. How do i get it back??


I have just installed KDE4 and some how i deleted the panel that used to be at the bottom of the screen. I cannot figure out how to add the panel. If I "add widgets" for the system tray or task manager, they are always small black boxes that appear somewhere on the desktop, and contain nothing.

Thanks for any assistance,

It's a bit drastic (you'll lose any customizations) but I got the panel back by renaming (or deleting) .kde4 in ~home and re-starting KDE 4

Hei, I don't have a kde 4 right now so I can't say exactly what to look for, but that is killing the fly with the cannon.
You can find the plasma configuration file and edit/rename/delete, it something like ./kde/share/config/*plasma* or other paths like this, I have edited it for the same reason, but now I don't have that computer near.
