I think my gnome-panel is messed up because I alt+right click it and nothing pops up. I'm on 12.04, classic gnome desktop.

so I used locate and found gnome-panel in .gconf somewhere, how do I clear just gnome-panel's settings so that I can add things to my panel again?

edit:

matt: ~/.gconf $ find|grep -iw panel
./desktop/ibus/panel
./desktop/ibus/panel/%gconf.xml
./apps/gnome-settings/gnome-panel
./apps/gnome-settings/gnome-panel/%gconf.xml
