The Panel of my KDE Desktom has disappeared in mid-session. I do
not associate this with any action of mine. How can I get it back?

Is your screen adjusted so nothing off the ends, top or bottom is cut
off? Maybe the kicker panel button got accidentally clicked and is
hidden off the edge of the screen. You could try burying the mouse
pointer in a bottom corner and clicking to see.

That was the first thing I did. I poked about with the mouse along all the
edges and in all the corners (I thought perhaps there might be a
sensitive point to bring it up, but there isn't. The bottom edge of the
Desktop does not seem to have been extended off the display, and there is
no veritcal scrollbar to show that there is more than what meets the eye.
And anyway, when the Panel does appear momentarily at boot, it is right
where it should be.

Launch kicker.

In the absense of the chameleon at the left end, I do not know how
to call up a command line. How is that done?

Press Alt + F2.

I tried this earlier. What I don't know is what Alt-F2 calls the
command line. I tried "terminal", but it doesn't know that.

Try konsole when the run command window comes up.

I have it now, because someone else mentioned it. It's very klever.

Does kicker run? (ps -ax)
What does the comandline tell you if you run it again?
Any error messages?
