The power status dropdown widget in ubuntu 9.04 disappeared. I'm referring to the one in the corner which (when pidgin is installed) displays user status, and has a dropdown to shut down, suspend, hibernate, etc. The system menu still contains commands to do this, but I'd prefer to use the dropdown in the corner.
How can I get it back?
Edit: The fix was to reset the panels with this command:
gconftool-2 --shutdown && rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel && pkill gnome-panel
